The first thing to do is to get some more ideas. Walk around some more and look at the other bookcases, pay attention to how they are built. Do you like one better then another? What kind of decorative molding do they have? Which do you like better? Might be worth a trip to a good furniture store to see what some of the real “upscale” pieces have on them. ( Before you leave the big-box store though, stop by the magazine section, and pick up a woodworking magazine. If you get even halfway lucky, you’ll have more than one to choose from and can find one that talks about bookcases.)
A lot of people who I talk to always seem to get confused between the woodworking finger joint and the dovetail joint - these are by no means the same. Dovetails always tend to have much less fingers than the woodworking finger joint and this has obvious dis-advantages. Dovetail joints are also a lot more difficult to produce than finger joints, I find finger joints a more easier alternative to dovetails.
The type of carpenters carries a extensive assortment of specialties which they may pursue within their profession. Generally, you will find 5 types of carpenters that focus on different kinds of carpentry jobs even though there are actually only 2 categories that define the majority of the woodworking industry and they are generally called rough carpenters and finish carpenters.
