BOOKENDING SPRING 2020: Smile For The Shelfie!
Welcome to the first weekend of Bookending Spring Storytellers! We are nearing the end of my journey here as host, but I thought it would be fun to help kick start us into the spring cleaning spirit by talking about our favorite area of our homes–our library!
If this is your first time here on my blog (hi! Hello! I’m Sam!) and you don’t already know what Bookending Spring is, its a month long event in April that was created by myself and Clo @ Cuppa Clo where we aspire to bring the bookish community closer together through the platform we love the most–blogging! Each day throughout the month, we have different prompts from different hosts that participants can replicate! I am so excited to check out everyone’s posts and prompts as we get more into the month as our hosts this year are dishing out quality content! You can also catch me smiling from ear to ear as I get to meet all of you on your blogs and on our Twitter (@bookend_events if you haven’t followed, you totally should!) page!
Also, don’t forget that we have a blog hopping masterlist! The list features all of our participants and those who are participating in Bookending Spring can put their post links next to their name for easy blog hopping! Can’t wait to see all your amazing posts! And with that, let’s get into today’s prompt!
Smile for the Shelfie!
Take a picture of your bookshelves and/or stacks and explain how you organize your books!
I am typically super peculiar on how I organize my shelves and stacks. I’ve tried–well, more like attempted–different methods (i.e., the aesthetically pleasing rainbow shelves), but I always find myself eye twitching at the state of my shelves when I do and then I put it right back to exactly as it was before. I am a woman of predictability if nothing at all.
For me, I try to keep my books organized by Genre and then within those shelves I go by height all the while keeping tomes by the same author together (to the printing press that thought it would be a great idea to have a sequel to a series as a different height then the rest–I hope you are drinking decaf).
- Poetry & Plays
- Christian Fiction, Non-Fiction, & Textbooks
Now, I do have four shelves that are ball-busters and defy my OCD. Two of these shelves are my favorite shelves, which contain my Sarah J. Maas collection, and the other shelf is jammed pack with my many editions of The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer. The remaining two shelves, hold the books that couldn’t fit within the genre organized shelves, and the other holding all my mass market paperbacks!
How do you organize your books?
