organisation

btt button

This week’s question is suggested by Kat:

“How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”


Oh, I do it by colour!!! No, sorry...I have always thought that would be more fun, but I have them placed alphabetically by author. Boring, but it works!

I have some pictures, here.

Now wouldn't that be interesting if you fixed your books by color? I'd really love to see that ^_^

Happy BTT!!!

Melody said...

Yes! It'd be fun if we could arrange them by colour!

Love your pictures!

Your pictures show someone who is organized and loves to read. I like that room.

LOL! My first thought was - oh, she's gutsy! Arranging by colour would be so fun and pretty.

Love the idea of arranging them by colour. A rainbow bookcase!

What a cozy looking room. A little mini-library.

Kat said...

If you arrange it by color, do you also arrange it by hue? Haha, that definitely would be interesting to see wouldn't it? :D

Very nice pictures of your books. Looks like it would be very easy to find books. I know where my books are but anyone else would have to ask what shelves they were on. =)

When I was young, my mother was the librarian of a small library that was open only on weekends. I would often go with her to work. When I was about 4, I rearranged about 3 shelves of books by size before she noticed. I hadn't realized the books were in a particular order!

Fortunately, my mom is pretty easygoing, so I wasn't in trouble.

Mine are stacked in a way that no one can understand but me.

I think that would be nice to decorate your room by book color! Nice pics too.

Nice pictures. I love seeing pix of other peoples books. Thanks.

Organizing by color would be very pretty, but it's not for me! I organize mine the same as yours.

I saw a photo once of a bookcase arranged by color. It was very striking. but if I did that, I'd never be able to find anything, and it would drive me crazy!

NoBS said...

OK...a bit off topic...I LOVE that blue cat thingy!

claire said...

I also arrange by author like you. I loved nosing through your books.. lots of wonderful books there that I loved, too. :)

For some strange reason I have always wanted to arrange them by color, but never have.

Color coding would be interesting (although not very practical). I like the pics! The shelves are nice.

Lenore said...

Haha - I read too quickly and then clicked on your link to your bookshelves and was like - hey! these aren't organized by color! Because I've always secretly wanted to do that...

I shelf my books by author's last name in alphabetical order. For fiction and literature, I single out the ones to be re-read and put them on a different case.

Ooh, sometimes I get the urge to organize mine by colour. Haven't tried it yet. :)
