I already have one (in the other corner) that was STUFFED with books, so I've decided to get my books completely organized. Now, I will admit that I am already bordering on neurotic when it comes to my bookshelf, so adding a whole second one (which was needed) threw me for a loop! I couldn't decide which books "deserved" to be on the new bookshelf, and which ones didn't.
I finally settled on having a bookshelf dedicated to the books that I've read, while the other bookshelf will be dedicated to the book that are on the TBR list. So, now my books are all organized and ready to go. I've ordered the "read" bookshelf a little differently than my TBR bookshelf, and we will have to see if I can let my OCD go enough to be okay with it.
Since I tend to either donate, or give books away to friends/family when I am done with them, there aren't a whole lot of books that I've kept. I couldn't get rid of any of my Jodi Picoult or James Patterson books, and I decided that they each will get their own little section instead of being in alphabetical order with the rest of the books. The James Patterson books took up most of the last shelf, making it so I had to give him a second shelf! I devoted that shelf to the Women's Murder Club series, because it was --- well, the best.
I am working on getting the TBR bookshelf put back together, but it is proving to be more of a challenge. I've got a few ideas on how I want to organize it, but nothing is looking perfect yet...so we will see. I will update to let you know what I decide.
How do you organize your books? Do you keep all of the books that you've read, or do you share them with others?
