Booking Through Thursday: Storage

“How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”

Hmmmmm I have never really thought about this but now that I have I can see that I have a bit of a system going on, kind of. We have books in nearly every room of our house, but the books that we treasure and want to keep forever are on proper bookshelves which are already full. The book shelf that houses mostly my books is at the top of the stairs and I tend to try to put books by the same author together but they are not in alphabetical or size order at all! The top shelf of the book shelf is dedicated to my TBR books so that I can sit at the top of the stairs and ponder what I want to read next. One of the next projects in
our house is to build some book shelves in our front sitting room as there are a lot of books lying around or shoved away in boxes that need a new home!

You had me going when I opened your blog and saw that picture. Wouldn't that be a dream-come-true?

Putting books by the same author together is about as organised as I get!

Smilingsal- I wish! I would love book shelves like that, Happy BTT!

Jo- glad it's not just me then that doesn't have an elaborate system!

Love the photo!!! We have run out of wall space, so unless we add a new room, we've reached the end of adding new shelves.

That picture is a bibliophiles dream come true! What would we all *give* to get bookshelves like THAT!!

Nicole said...

If only my living room looked like that. Great picture. The woman looked so posed that it was my only clue that those probably were not your bookshelves.

Kat said...

Oh that would be amazing! I'd love to have a room just for my books. :D

My answer's here.

I'm weird, my first thought was how much does the sun fade the spines of the books!!!
