My younger brother sent me this link to a great article by Geradine Brooks, author of Year of Wonder, People of the Book (hence the reason for the title of the article) and many other well known titles. The article is about organising your books, Alpha by subject … or by dinner party seating rules? Do you have a shelving obsession?
After reading the article I took a few pictures of some of our bookshelves.
Some of our large cookbook collection are arranged by colour.
Hardbacks and history, mainly together because of size.
If you looked at the bookshelves overall there isn’t really a system to them which is rather surprising considering I was a librarian.
Since taking these pictures I was toying up with the idea of reorganising the shelves but decided against it as I enjoy looking for the book I want. If I did reorganise I could perhaps take the time to do it this way . . .
The project is described here
