BOOKCASES, how to decorate

Hello friends:

Thanks for all the comments on the "weekend party" idea. Today, I want to talk to you about my nightmare, "bookcases".  I have a beautiful oak and brass antique bookcase. I cannot paint it, because is in the "family" so, the problem is the "mess", I can't keep it straight.
I need to take a picture, not today, but I promise to take a picture of the before and after.

Take out all the drawers, paint and wallpaper, and voila, you have a bookcase ,my  problem, I already have one.

Well, enough inspiration, I know a lot of people organize by size, color, height their books.  I didn't, I organized them by topics, then I added some "collectibles" my favorite things, some more books going the other way.
I thought about covering some books with white paper, have you seen that??  give me some ideas PLEASE.
I promise I will show you the mess, I'm so ashamed, but I use my books too much, so everything gets out of order.

Oh well, good friends, talk to you tomorrow,

love and blessings,
