My books are sort of organised by type, but mainly they’re organised with the heaviest on the bottom so the bookcase doesn’t fall over.
I organise my books by type too! Helvetica at the bottom, Times New Roman at the top.
…I’m here all week. Try the fish.
Are you supposed to organise book shelves then?
I do start with good intentions and try to have authors together. But I have found that my shelves are different heights and that’s where it starts to unwind. I do have a couple of thousand books I reckon. The only room without books is .. wait no, every room has books in.
i dont have many books
so i sort them by series then size
I used to organise them by colour.
This is why I borrow books from the Library or friends. I never read a book twice anyway. =D
this reminds me of twilight sparkle…
I know, right?! XD
Always alphabetize! <3
Genre, definitely. And then author, if fiction, and subject, if non fiction. Ones I read more often on the right, as it’s easier to get to.
When I was young, I even put coloured dots on the spines, as they do in the library! I now organise my church library, so it was good practise.
Of course, I do also have random heaps on the floor, beside my bed, etc…
Fiction by author, non fiction by subject
My books are everywhere, mostly on my bed
I do try and organise them like, once a year but that seems to be just throwing loads of old ones out and then the week after that wanting to read them
never throw out books
I have a kindle. Now my books are disorganized there.
Haha The same happens to me.
I used to have my cds and dvds organised by colour. It’s best.
I don’t have any non-fiction books (except for 1 hamster book) so i sort them out by author, alphebetically! (:
And Pauline should be ashamed! I mean seriously. Who doesn’t like neatness? Do you want to waddle in your own filth? Is waddle even a word? Oh wait, waddle is a word….
How can you people organise things by colour?? O.O That’s just wrong. I always sort them by genre then author, then size.
My new organization system is “sell them on Amazon!”
It is working great.
Size with a subset of by author.
But then I lost almost all of my books to water damage and I was very sad.
I have fewer than three milk crate worth of books now, and I am sad.
