Books By the Foot?

While looking for schoolbooks I stumbled upon this concept from Housing Works NYC which resells second hand books: purchase of books by ‘the foot’ for decor purposes. I’m not sure whether I love the idea from a design point of view (imagine lovely old world like books stacked up in many rows) or completely hate it from a literary point of view (is anyone going to read those nice looking books?! Or are they just meant to be completely pretentious?).

Good idea though, very novel (oho a pun!).
