This week’s Booking Through Thursday question:
“How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”
My shelves are quasi-sorted… when I moved in with Scott we consolidated our books onto my large bookshelf, so basically what happened was he got the top shelf, I the middle, and all of our large books take up the bottom. On my shelf, the books are mostly arranged by height, because I don’t like bumpy lines, but also by author if there’s a need. But then I started bringing books home from my parents’ house (a project still not done!) and all of those ended up on shelves in our spare room. Those are pretty much sorted by books I’ve read and books that I haven’t managed to crack open in the five years I’ve owned them. Maybe someday I’ll actually organize those shelves.
There are also “to be sold on Amazon.com” books in the closet (Scott’s) and cookbooks in the kitchen (mine). And library books in a canvas library bag next to the bed. And probably books hiding elsewhere that just haven’t been unpacked yet!
