Booking Through Thursday: Storing books

booking_through_thursLet’s go Booking Through Thursday!

This week’s question: “How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”

I would have thought I’d be very anal-retentive about this, but I’m actually not. I store my books in only one particular way: they get tucked onto whichever shelf I can fit them! I have limited storage space and can’t really organize them the way I would want to — which would probably be alphabetical. The only books on my shelves are ones I’ve finished and can’t bear to part with. All of my TBR books are in stacks on the other side of my room — towering piles of them by my bedroom door. It’s not terribly efficient, but at least most of them are in one place!

The only exception to this would be my Jane Austen books. On the top shelf of my white bookcase, I have all of my JA novels, fiction and biographies grouped together! There are probably around ten titles now, not including the ones I haven’t started yet. I like knowing they’re all together — and with my compilation of Austen’s self-penned letters! It makes me happy!

  1. 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. I only put away my books when I have finished. New Books usually sit on my desk.
