My bookshelf and walls are empty and one partner always comments that it bothers him. But other than that it's not really a big deal.

Put up small, framed photos of your former self doing the fun things you used to enjoy... you know, to remind yourself that you used to be a fun-having person.

In case this is serious...

NO, don't be ridiculous. Your bookshelf is for use in your work. It will slowly fill with library books, file folders, and whatever other detritus your practice generates. A couple pictures are normal, but overall it's not for decoration.

Neff wrote:I have been selling all my used law books on Amazon to recoup some cash. Now I'm worried I won't have anything to put on my office bookshelf in big law firm once I start working. Are most junior associates expected to have their office bookshelves brimming with law books? Should I start buying cheap used copies of the books that I had previously sold so that I will have something to put on my bookshelf?

Lol no.

Stocked bookshelves are for boomers.
