This week’s question is suggested by Kat:
My books are generally arranged by genre/theme. For example, all my non-fiction books are grouped together, but then my NASA books have their own grouping within the non-fiction books. I also have an "India" area, where all my books about India reside, but these are sub-categorized by author (Rushdie books together, Jhumpa Lahiri books together, Indu Sundaresan books together, etc.) So I guess I can say that my books are arranged by genre and grouped by author.
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 on?”
That's my living room bookshelf. Now, the bookshelf in my guest bedroom/reading room is arranged three ways: there are the books I need to review, the books I haven't read, and the books I need to find a new home for. There's not much arranging beyond this, in terms of genre or author. And there are definitely books I haven't read out in the living room, but generally once I know I want to read them soon, I move them onto the other bookshelf.
Whew! To me it's simple, but when I spell it out like that it seems much more complicated!
