This week’s question: How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading-device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads, Leafmarks or Booklikes?
Answer: I don’t really organize them. Finding a book on my Kindle usually requires some scrolling and angry muttering about how I need to be better organized. My ‘bookish platforms’ are organized by broad categories. I tag all of my books with one of these labels: genre fiction, literary fiction, young adult, middle grade, nonfiction, classic, short story collection, poetry, or play. The tags make them slightly easier to find. It also allows me to see how many books in each category I’m reading.
My physical bookshelves are actually a little bit organized. The books are currently sorted by size, subject, or color. Here’s what I have:
- One shelf for my trade paperbacks. (No other books will fit on it.)
- One shelf for my TBR.
- Four shelves for my series books.
- Three shelves for my books about cults.
- One shelf for my writing reference books.
- Tons of shelves for miscellaneous books, standalones, and books that don’t fit on other shelves.
Some quick pictures of the shelves near my computer. These are mostly standalones, classics, and cult books (also a dog who wouldn't get out of the way).
The follow part: If you are a book blogger and you leave a link to your blog in the comments below, I will follow you on Bloglovin’. I’d love it if you also followed me. If you want to be friends on Goodreads, Twitter, BookLikes, or G+, that would be awesome, too. Click the links to go to my pages on those sites. I’m looking forward to “meeting” you.
