Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about books and reading.
How do you organize/store your books? Do you go through them often? Or do you pretty much just shelve them and then leave them alone until you need them?
Can I just say that I am trying to be organized? Really, I am. I even downloaded an app for my phone that scans the bar code of your books and automatically enters them into an excel spreadsheet. That kind of organized. And yet I don’t think it’s really helping!
I tend to store my books by general category, with all of a particular author’s books together in one place (of course) and a more general category organization after that–classics together, historical fiction, nonfiction, etc.–but this is a very loose system. The fact is that I have more books on my TBR pile than I should, and I tend to just start stacking them up at random after a while. I don’t usually go through them again until I’m looking for something in particular.
We have lots of wall shelves, as well as a large bookcase in our living room. And this doesn’t include all the books my 8-year-old has…having three book lovers (and a soon-to-be-reading fourth) in the house makes for a lot of books to keep up with!
