Every other Thursday here at the Broke & The Bookish is A Cocktail & Conversation time. One of the TBTB members will pose a question to 2-3 of the other members of TB&TB crew about books, life, music, etc and then they'll answer and we can converse about it. So grab a cocktail & cozy up for some conversation. It's 5 o'clock somewhere, friends.
Julia asks: Do you have a favorite/specific way to display the books in your house? Like color coded spines? Alphabetical? Wherever the book fits on the shelf?
Jamie says: I'm kind of boring about my shelves. I have an adult fiction/non-fiction shelf, an ARC shelf and a YA shelf and they are all alphabetized by last name. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to do color coded because aesthetically it's so pleasing and what a conversations starter that would be! However, I don't have time and I really think I'd get irritated if I forget what color a book was. lol
Tahleen says: My husband and I spent the better part of an afternoon a few months ago organizing our entire library. It is now arranged by genre, then alphabetically by author. We have sections devoted to young adult, children's books, science, religion, textbooks, travel, graphic novels, and Christmas books, among others.
Paula says: I have two shelves. My to-read shelf and my read shelf. Both are organized alphabetically by author. Although my to-read shelf is spilling out on the floor as I buy new books and are in no order at all (I blame Jamie! I never had this problem until she introduced me to the concept of library sales a few years ago @_@) And my read shelf is filling up- I have to be super picky about what books earn a spot of honor on it.
How do YOU organize your bookshelves??
