What’s Your Book Shelfie Style?

personal significance mixed with chronological

Stacked for space, genre, alphabetical by author, special shelf for personal meaning. I don’t fuck around with my book organization.

Mine are sorted by theme; there’s a shelf for my collection of old books, a shelf for my massive collection of Holmesiana, a shelf for comics, a shelf for my Garth Nix (of which I have a great many), a (section of) a shelf for Tolkien etc. Within those sections things are just put wherever with the exception of the Holmesiana, which is chronological.

The manga collection, however, IS sorted alphabetically by title, as is the DVD collection.

People organize their books? er…um I mean I organize my books all the time. 

L has all our books organized throughout the house by genre and then generally by author. And feigenbaumsworld, she will likely be so horrified by the thought of unorganized books that she’ll be on her way down as soon as she reads this.

"There was a tradition of not allowing black and whites, and, actually, other interracial couples from marrying. It was a tradition. It got swept aside. Why is this tradition better?"
