We have friends coming into town in the next few weeks, and as my office is also the spare bedroom, that means I’mma cleanin’.
So, once again I’m cleaning/reorganizing my bookshelves, because I can’t leave well enough alone. I just can’t decide if I want it sorted alphabetically all, or if I want to divide it into genres… I’m probably going to be rearranging for the rest of my life.
But since I had it in alphabetical all before, I’m of course now moving them into a genre-based organization.
The books are divided into the categories of: Fantasy, Graphic Novels, Literature, Non-fiction, “Other”, Romance, Science Fiction, and Thrillers. I don’t sort them out by category and the “Other” section contains my western/historical fiction/poetry collection.
Technically I have an “Old Books” section too. The newest in this collection is from 1951 and is a guide to learning Japanese in 30 hours. The oldest is a book on the myths of Greece and Rome from 1893. And as it happens, I have the same novel from a print run done in 1993.
We’ll see how long it takes before I re-rearrange these…. anyone want to place bets?
