I was going to look at someone's bookshelf, but instead found it private.  Why would someone make their bookshelf private but everything else including profile not private? That seems odd to me.

Some people are firm believers in the FIFO system.

Some people don't want to be questioned on why they don't have any books posted on their Bookshelf.

Some people don't want their family/friends to know what is on their Bookshelf.

Some people are mouthy in the forums and don't want people to be able to request books directly from them.  

Some people haven't figured out their Bookself was automatically set to Private to turn the setting off.
