This week’s question is suggested by Kat:
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?”
Okay, here's the deal. I'm a super-freaky neat-nick. I hate dust and hairballs and unmade beds but I have a secret: my bookshelves are messy. I blame that on the fact that I have more books than space for them. The book cupboard (it's an old armoire) is 2 rows deep and sometimes it's hard to remember what's back there. If I had bookshelves like Natasha, then I would make an effort to be neater.
Anyway, I think there is some kind of method in there somewhere but no one else could ever figure it out. Books I love are alphabetized (sort of), books I read and will part with in the future (but not now) are to the left, TBR books are in the middle, borrowed books are to the right. I think...
So my books are messy but I'm a neat freak, I wonder what that says about me.
I did just buy a print from Paperbones: Penelope. I love the bookshelves in this print. I have it hanging by the messy bookshelves. Inspiration maybe?
