How do you shelve your books?!

Right, I’m scrolling through Facebook, as I do when the kids go to bed, and I come across this link.
The Smartest Way To Organise Your Bookshelves

I think to myself, ‘ooooooh, has someone come up with a really cool new idea/arrangement?!’. Short answer……. NO.
This link has actually left me in a state of confusion. If you’re a book lover, reader, keeper, hoarder, connoisseur, whatever, chances are you have book shelves. Or at least a place to keep them. So do you organise them? Maybe you had loads of time and could arrange them alphabetically, or maybe even by colour if Pineterest is anything to be believed. If you do, then I am jealous! 🙂

Anyway, this article’s wonderful and inspired way to organise your books is, wait for it………

READ shelved together and UNREAD shelved together!!!!! *insert shocked face here*

Can I ask one question?

WHO DOESN’T DO THIS?!?!?!?!?!?!

I can’t compute how you could choose a book to read, read it, and then put it back in the same place.

If you follow me over on Facebook at Bibliophile Book Club then you’ll know that a while ago, I rearranged my bookshelves at home. I put all the books I’ve read onto one set of shelves, and all of my TBR books onto their own set of shelves.*
*I have always kept my TBR books separate to my read books just in case you think this was a new thing! I just didn’t have the space before I moved everything around!

Here’s my “read” shelves~

And here’s my TBR shelves~

I’m sorry if I sound mad!!! I’m just finding it odd to know that people don’t separate their read from unread!

So, let me ask you this, how do you shelve yours?!

  1. I organise mine into series.. So for example I have a shelf of Harry Potter. Shelf of true blood.. Shelf of anything Kathy Reichs.. Then the odd ones go in alphabetical order :). I also try and make of list and keep to one author to try and collect them all :p hasn’t happened yet :p haha.. And I’ve filled three bookcases so more is needed
