Booking Through Thursday

I recently got new bookshelves for my room, and I’m just loving them. Spent the afternoon putting up my books and sharing it on my blog . One of my friends asked a question and I thought it would be a great BTT question. So from Tina & myself, we’d like to know “How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”

My books seem to be shelved haphazardly but I do have a system, sort of.

Firstly, read books are in the back and the books in the front are usually in my to-read-pile. I also tend to shelf hardbacks separately because they are just too big to put in the middle of paperbacks. Non-fiction are at top and the reference books I need most often are close at hand.

I also tend to put books by the same author together.

Comics and trades have their own shelves.

Well, that’s what I had at my previous place. Now, they are mostly shelves that way, too, I haven’t yet had the energy to shelf anything properly. Marvel and DC comics are still in the piles and the newest books are on top of the comic piles…
