This week’s question is suggested by Kat:
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?”
My books are arranged pretty haphazardly (I love this word!). I have three bookcases and also the tops of two closets and an entire linen closet that I have devoted to books, and they are all just mixed in and laying around together. Fiction with non-fiction, "A" authors next to "Z" authors, literary magazines next to books, hardcovers next to paperbacks. I think we all get the idea. The one little bookcase that I have in my bedroom is more exclusive since it tends to be books that have newly arrived, and that I will be reading in the next couple of months or so. Even then they are not in any particular order, and still somehow I always know what I am looking for. I do like my books to be about the same height next to each other, that might be the one criteria that I have. Tallest to shortest.
How about you? Are your shelves in any particular order?
