I recently got new bookshelves for my room, and I’m just loving them. Spent the afternoon putting up my books and sharing it on my blog . One of my friends asked a question and I thought it would be a great BTT question. So from Tina & myself, we’d like to know “How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”
Somehow I don’t like this question. Not because it isn’t nice, but because I don’t exactly have shelf’s that I can show off. I have a post up on my blog on shelf-cleaning and I had said that I can now accommodate at least 40 more books in. At that time it made me really happy, but I didn’t realize how quickly the space will be occupied. Now I don’t have any space left. I’ll have to put some books above the arrangement but somehow I don’t like doing that.
But anyway. Whatever be the case, previously, before shelf-cleaning, my books were not arranged at all, just nicely placed. Now I have them divided into 2 sections. Read and un-read. That’s all I can afford to do here. But I think that’s enough. When I have a bigger shelf though, my books will be arranged as read, to be reviewed and books from my TBR pile. And then maybe, if I feel like it I might arrange them author wise. Or maybe fiction and non-fiction.
Basically I don’t think about it much because then it makes me sad. Even if you just Google bookshelves, you’ll see some amazing shelves. Here take a look at a couple. The window one is from Susan’s blog. Susan, I hope you don’t mind.
I am going to make it happen someday. When I have a house I can call my own.
