Thoughts on Future Book Organizing
The books are packed! My shelves are empty, dusty, and forlorn. I can't WAIT to unpack and reorganize my books this weekend. The key word in that sentence is ORGANIZE; as I was packing I was thinking of a different way to organize my books.
Here is how they are organized now: large fancy books, graphic novels, poetry anthologies, short story anthologies, non-fiction (organized by country, then time period), then alphabetical by author through all the fiction titles.
I'm thinking about doing something different and organizing some titles by publisher. All my Viragos, Persephones, NYRBS, Penguins, and Oxfords would look REALLY nice stacked horizontally on my shelves. The rest of the books will be organized as usual. Do you think this will work? With my LibraryThing account I can still keep track of my books and I believe it will look stunning.
Has anyone ever tried this method of book organization? Will I love it or want to kick myself later?
Give me some feedback people!
