Booking through Thursday.

This week's discussion is about storage. ---------


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?”

As you can see by the photos I have a few bookcases strewn around the house. The top left and one on the right are in a spare bedroom and the bottom left is in the lounge. A couple of weeks ago I re-arranged some of the books , by storing some on the dresser in the lounge as shown. This was an attempt to tidy the spare bedroom and give my oldest daughter a bookcase for her room.There is no particular order, by genre or author. It is a little his n' hers as my husband's large history books are mostly on one case and mine on the others. The rearranging plan didn't really work as you can see , all the bookcases are still quite full and other than storing some on the floor this is the way they will stay. There are more books in the house , stacked in large boxes . These belong to my youngest daughter, books she read from junior school up to the age of 18. She can't store them in her house so here they stay. I dream about a room with books floor to ceiling , my own private library, heaven! Oh well, carry on dreaming Mog!

If I had as many books as you, my shelves wouldn't probably look so neat. Haha. I love your his-and-hers thing. I forgot to put my husband also has a shelf of his own, too, all cookbooks. I'm dreaming of a library, too.. right. :D

I'm a frustrated librarian at heart, mine are in alphabetical order. I find it very frustrating as the boys will just pile books on their shelves anywhere.
