When it comes to my bookshelf there is very little order to it ! I have often tried to organise it into chronological, alphabetical or genre based order however it never seems to last. As soon as I finish a book I dump it on the bookshelf and pick up my next read. Saying that however I do like to have my books in size order but only for aesthetics.
Many people find that having an organised bookshelf allows them to see exactly all they books they have read and are easy to find on these shelf’s and I agree however I find that the time spent organising could be spend reading.
However if you do wish to organise your bookshelf there are different ways you could do this;
- Separate your paperbacks and hardbacks
- In order of when you read them
- In alphabetical order
- By colour
- By genre or subject
- Based on how much you liked the book
- By author
- By height and size
- Seperate fiction and nonfiction
- Sperate your to be read books
These are all useful and one day my bookshelf will be completely organised !
