Nancy, my Read Street blogging partner, is redecorating, and of course, the project revolves around finding a home for dozens of books. As any serious reader knows, establishing an order for all those books is a tough decision.
How do I shelve thee? Let me count the ways.
She might order her books according to genre: mystery, horror (vampire novels alone would would need an entire shelf), etc. Or fiction and non-. Or something more esoteric, such as the color spectrum noted by RikkiDonovan's The Bookkeeper blog, and pictured on Flickr.
My shelves are loosely ordered by topic, including baseball, Judaica and biographies. I also have sub-groups with books from trips I've taken.
What's on your shelves?
