This weekâ€™s question is suggested by Kat:
I recently got new bookshelves for my room, and Iâ€™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, weâ€™d like to know â€œHow do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?â€
Itâ€™s really hard to diagram my shelving in words, as it is a system only I can understand at first glance.Â So I made a picture!
As you can see, itâ€™s quite a convoluted order, partially dictated by shelf height and my need to keep my unread books separate from my read books.Â The first 6 shelves of unread paperbacks actually have 2 rows of books.Â I also have 3 boxes of books to swap in an upstairs bedroom.
Within these shelves, all of my books are arranged alphabetically by author.Â Otherwise, Iâ€™d *never* find anything.Â Especially with the books Iâ€™m swapping, because I have to seek out specific titles one at a time.
In addition to these, I have two stacks of review/ARC books sitting on top of the small bookshelf in my living room.
Itâ€™s all just a little bit ridiculous, no?
