In the Stacks

I know I promised you a post on my recent purchases but you’ve got to see what I’ve been working on for the last two days… my bookshelves! I have five Billy bookcases, the one in the middle of these is narrower and holds all my craft books/magazines and special books I’ve made.

These other four though are double-stacked and stuffed and I still had books on the floor. I’m sure many of you have the same problem. The thing is, it really was starting to get out of control so I pulled every book off, shelf by shelf and went through and weeded out books that I was no longer interested in and books in bad shape.

I don’t know if you can see some of the blue sticky notes on some of the shelves. This was my guide as to which books went where. I don’t alphabetize by author but I do groups. For example one shelf has all the authors last names from A-C.

There are sections on my shelves devoted to Classics, Poetry, Books in Spanish, Fiction, Mystery/Thrillers, and advance review copies. I also have some groups of books like all the Persephones in one stack and all the Europa editions in another. You get the idea right?

I have no more books on the floor and of course I do have a bit of space where I could fit in some newcomers. Haha.. As far as the books I’ve decided to part with I’m planning to donate some to the Little Free Libraries in my neighborhood, the library, and maybe even take a few to Half Price Books. Tomorrow I’m off on another bookish adventure so I’ll tell you about that next time.
