If you don't use the books, how were you going to get the microphone close to your face?

Getting closer to the microphone may help with echoes, too.

If I would make a soundproof box I'd try to pad its floor with something in order to make it higher. But I'm not making one now, so I'll stick with the books for a while and see how it goes :D

Since you have live walls, you can view the wall as a source of sound. The idea is shrink the distance to your face and increase the distance to the walls.

We're going with your microphone. I did my podcast test with a head-mounted theatrical microphone (not gamer headset). The room is irrelevant.
