Organize Books

Musing Mondays2

This week’s question:

How do you organize/store your books? Do you go through them often? Or do you pretty much just shelve them and then leave them alone until you need them?

Matt 096

At this moment, I’m putting books into storage to get ready for moving. The book shelf is in disarray. I’m keeping the ones that I’ll re-read and packing them into different boxes that shall be moved directly to the new home. As you see in the picture, books are horizontal and three-stack deep on the shelf right now. Usually I organize by genre, subject within genre, alphabetical order by authors last name. There’s nothing quite like being able to find the exact book you are looking for and immediately know which book has been borrowed just by where the space is in the shelf. I’m the kind of person who prefers everything to be in its proper place. New books are separated in a pile.

  1. The way your books are stacked makes me want to look through them!
