I LOVE TALKING ABOUT BOOKSHELVES. And I love looking at everyone’s bookshelf tours. For me, organising my shelves, moving books around, is very therapeutic 😉 I do stick to my system though!
So yes, I have a ~*~system~*~. I’m not sure how much sense it makes to everyone else though. I have a few main categories/genres of interest, and within those I sort my books by author name. I don’t have a special order for books by one author, but series are of course in the right order. Read and TBR books are mixed because, well, my system.
Sounds simple enough, I guess?
I have bookshelves in three places in my house, and my favourite genres and books are in the living room: Sci-fi & fantasy, a variety of contemporary literature, Dutch literature, LGBT, and Japanese literature. Another bookshelf in my living room carries my ‘special’ books, the really beautiful books. In this case my Folio Society books and my Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics.
And then I have this ‘random’ bookshelf in a room-that-will-become-my-library. This bookshelf has children’s books, some classics and some books that I am not crazy about (yet). Also my Japanese books, reference books and non-fiction are there. Basically books that I don’t really have to see every day…
I’m planning a bookshelf tour, probably this weekend, so keep an eye out! 😀
