    I got a small personal library. Around 100-200 books .. Problem is they get dusty real quick. Any tips to prevent that? Any tips to not get dust to your books? Tips on cleaning bookshelf?

    I was thinking like placing a plastic seal in front of the bookshelf so dust can't reach the books :p I don't know. Just wondering.

    Thanks for the replies!

    Hepa Air Filtration System is your friend there.

    You can get a room unit and you'll have the cleanest air in your neighborhood.

    If you used to read the books or at least took once in a week, then there wont be any such problem with the dusts :)

    I knew someone would point this out .. So you read 100-200 books a week? a month? ... I read one book a week so the other 99+ don't get touched usually. I thought perhaps there's something on the market that prevents dust on books. The books accumulated over the years. It's not to brag or showcase. I like to read and practice self-improvement. That's also a reason why I'm here at BHW.

    + A loose plastic seal perhaps? So I can still get a book. You really think I'm so stupid to lock everything up so I can't reach it anymore? -.-

    Not i Meant, Read all the 100 - 200 books a week or month - That's impossible @any - Imao!

    Here's what i meant, if you used to read books or once in a week, then you will clean care of the shelf or caring of other books from the dust.

    Plastic seal - lol - that was just a j/k :)

    If you have money to spend, then you can go for air filtration system like BTB said or you can cover up with the Glass door or buy a new rack or anything!
