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
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.
Is there a difference in the pronunciation of 꽂이 and 꽃이? I really can't hear it. Thanks!
책장 = large bookcase
책꽂이 = small bookcase, bookrack, bookshelf (?)
책선반 = bookshelf
