Just go with 'alphabetical by author' and be done with it!

Can't, cos that would mean all my Buffy and Doctor Who books, among others, would be all split up! And I need to keep fiction and non-fiction separate, except do I want my non-fiction Buffy beside my fiction Buffy? Argh, etc...

It's easy. There's big books, small books, pink books and other books.

This may well be what I end up with. More or less every series I've got seems to have 30% hardback/ oversized paperbacks, and the rest normal paperbacks.

We go loosely by subject but then subdivide into a few larger categories: 'Reference' 'Anime/Manga' 'Textbooks' 'Classics' 'Sci Fi and Fantasy' and then 'to be read' XD

:D My "to read" section would be ridiculous!

Do it by colour

You'll know where they all are anyway. I don't think its any worse than any other potential system.

So pretty! And tempting, but what do you do with Pterry?!

Hee, I see now why you needed all those bookshelves! Hope you have fun finding a satisfactory way of organising them.
pickwick
Mar. 24th, 2008 07:22 pm (UTC)
I need to actually think about it properly rather than just moving stuff about randomly, heh.

Icon love!

Sort by publisher!

*laughing*

...

Actually, that's not a bad plan. At least there's only one publisher for each book. And most of the related stuff would end up together.

What are the books in the 2nd bookcase from the left, top shelf, with the white strip along the middle of their spines?
pickwick

They're the new Penguin Celebrations collection with old-style covers - they're lovely!

Spine colour! Looks like you might have more success with that than I did the other day.

Have you seen the Rainbow of Books flickr group? So pretty. It is tempting.

You're an evil woman, do you know that? I now have a near-irresistible urge to come round and organise those shelves, and if you lived any nearer, I'd do it, too. It's what comes of having a librarian for a mother. (It's a little known fact that librarianity is a heritable trait).
pickwick

Heh! I could do with someone who would come round and organise them ruthlessly, I'm crippled by having all these things I feel should be near each other just because...

Funny quote

At work, the authority of a person is inversely proportional to the
number of pens that person is carrying.
