Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Should Be Reading‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Shelving your books on your bookshelf!
Okay, so I ask this because I’m thinking of/in need of reorganizing my bookcase because I’m running out of room on the shelves to keep my series together.
I have one “display shelf” (which is probably taking up too much room) and than I organize all my books by alphabetical order by author’s last name. It’s nice because everything is easy to find!
But, there’s a few things that annoy me about it. My books are all varying heights on my shelf, so I can never “double stack” books on top. (Which of course, means less rooms for books). Also, because the shelves are almost full, if I need to add a new book into the shelf, I have to move whole rows of it, sigh.
Currently all my classic novels, adult novels etc. are mixed with my YA and what not. And I’ve been thinking of re-organizing it by genre (than author’s name).
Anyway, how do you guys shelve your books? Do you have a super organized system? Or is it more, books that look pretty together, or whatever way it fits into the shelf!
Let me know if you have any suggestions too! (:
