Visual Encyclopedia


A bookcase, or bookshelf, is a piece of furniture with horizontal shelves, often in a cabinet, used to store books or other printed materials. Bookcases are used in private homes, public and university libraries, offices and bookstores. Bookcases range from small, low models the height of a table to high models reaching up to ceiling height. Shelves may be fixed or adjustable to different positions in the case. In rooms entirely devoted to the storage of books, such as libraries, they may be permanently fixed to the walls and/or floor.

Under the Bed Bookshelf

Once you fill up your other bookshelves, you have to get creative. Maybe this would keep the stack of books on my nightstand from touching the ceiling...

You might say, but isn't that book shelf huge? Or, do you really need that many books? Or, how are you going to even reach the top ones? My answers: yes; yes; with books, anything is possible.

You're lying if you say you wouldn't love this to be in your house. You're lying, or you didn't watch enough Scooby Doo.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
