Booking Through Thursday

It’s been awhile since I’ve done one.

How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?

I have very limited space but I have noticed a pattern in the way I shelve my books. First, they are shelved by category and then they are shelved alphabetically within their catergory. I try to stick to a system but I’m not anal about it. As long as I know where the books are I’m generally happy. Of course, I’m lusting for the day where I will be able to fill up my floor-t0-ceiling shelves in my own private library and space will not be an issue. Then, I will develop a lovely little system. 🙂



  1. I too am pretty anal. BiblioGuy rolls his eyes at how anal I can be sometimes about the proper placement of a book. Still, like you, due to space, I’m not as organized as I’d like to be. But there will definitely come a day when that won’t be an issue. Talk about heavenly bliss… 🙂

  2. I shelf my books by author’s last name in alphabetical order. For fiction and literature, I single out the ones to be re-read and put them on a different case.
