Hard to tell in the pics on wiki, but is more necessarily better?  How many bookshelves would you put and how far apart?

The minecraft wiki's diagram pretty much tells the simplest way to do it... Sorry.

I basically surround it with enough room (1 block) to walk all the way around it and have a 1-block wide entrance. With the shelves stacked two high of course :P

Yup, exactly like that. It seems to be the standard way of doing it to get max boost from the bookshelves ^_^

Putting any more than that won't do anything, that's the max. The ground, roof and a two-block space for a door don't count.

I use pistons to move bookshelves in and out, thus effectively increasing/decreasing how much power the enchantments will have.

You can simply block off bookshelves with torches.

12 X 2 High. = 24 Bookshelves Posted Image
Why ? Posted Image
The Bookshelves need to "face" the Enchantment Table which should be standing on the floor. The 4 X 2 in the corners is useless.
A third row on top dosn't do anything.
Elevating the Enchantment Table 1 blok dosn't do anything. The "Rays" can't go downwards.

Access from underneath (or from the top).

Dude, you're responding to a half-year old post. It was changed in the last update.
