The day I get new bookshelves and get to play for hours organizing them!!
Sooooo, they started out like this:
And ended up like this:
And, in case you were dying for more angles:
Unfortunately, I still have lots and lots of books that don't fit on those shelves (not just the pile you see by the side, either). So I'll have to get another bookshelf, or two. Darn it! <----sarcasm
Anyhoo, after trying out a bunch of different organizational methods, I just went with alphabetical by author. So allll my genres are mixed together. Fantasy*, contemp, sci-fi, romance, classic, thriller... YA, adult, MG. I love it! Authors that would never otherwise share shelf space are hugging in my shelves :) Except for the top shelves--those I saved for my super old books. You know, the ones that smell so freaking good? The ones from this post: The Smell of Old Books <---click it to see, I swear the pictures make it almost as good as a scratch and sniff blog post!
Also, my TBR is way smaller than I thought it was--but I've still got a long way to get to the bottom of it!
I need some help deciding what order to read everything in--but we'll save that for a later post :)
PS. School me, readers: should I be using the term bookshelf, or bookcase? Or does it even matter?
*Obvi, I'm a fantasy girl at heart...
Thanks for stopping by!
