Discussion: How do you organize your bookshelves?
I love spying on other people’s bookshelves, not only to judge their reading tastes (😆) but also to see how they organize things.
I tend to re-arrange my overflowing shelves every few years and I’m about due. I currently have three primary categorizations:
POTUS books, shelved sequentially from George Washington to Joe Biden (stemming from my big POTUS reading project)
Non-fiction, shelved by author last name
Fiction, shelved by author last name
I’d like to have more non-fiction categories, however, as I sometimes have a hard time what I’m looking for—non-fiction author names don’t come to me as readily as novelists, for some reason.
So I might end up with with something like this for my non-fic books:
These are the non-fiction niches I read most—yours are likely different. We’ll see how it shakes out in the coming weeks.
Okay, your turn! How do you organize your shelves? No judgment, even if you organize by color.
