OMG seriously I didn't even notice that it was ㅈ here until you pointed it out and actually was thinking the same thing as the OP

Its funny that the vertical part of ㅗ in '꽂' looks like the little dash above 'ㅊ' if you don't look really closely

Thank you for pointing that out!

Apparently it's from 꽂다 meaning 'insert' I guess we'd say in English. You insert a book into the space between other books on the shelf.

The heck happened to 책장???

책장 = large bookcase

책꽂이 = small bookcase, bookrack, bookshelf (?)

책선반 = bookshelf
