I am a natural organiser, and organising things makes me happy. My books were arranged by genre, and alphabetical for fiction, which was very practical so I decided to be completely unpractical and arrange two of my shelves by colour, to create a kind of rainbow:
It's completely impractical, because colour is not exactly a defining feature of a book, but I'm pleased nonetheless. It'll force me to look through things properly when I'm looking for a book rather than just choosing a genre. My other two shelves do look a bit drab now though!
Omg that is so cute :3 Looks amazing!ReplyDelete
(I'm all practical librarian like and have ofc organized my books by the surname of the authors and keeping fiction and fact books apart)
Yes, it's totally impractical but it does brighten up the room.
Good job I'm not a real librarian :p
What a creative idea! It looks so cool! I've always shelved mine by genre but this makes me want to try switching things up!ReplyDelete
It's really brightened up my room, but if you do it, be prepared to not be able to find anything quickly!
I'm really jealous of your bookshelves; they look awesome. I tried to do that once, but stopped halfway through when I noticed that I didn't have enough colors to do it with.ReplyDelete
Hello, I found you via herbookself.ReplyDelete
I love the rainbow shelves! Please don't change them back. I arrange books so that authors are next to other authors they might like - or they should be. Recently books have been stacked up and shoved everywhere.
I might have a rainbow revamp.
