The Question:

How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on yourreading-device, or on your bookishplatform like Goodreads,Leafmarks orBooklikes.  – Unconventional Book Views

My Answer: 

Ugh. This is actually something I’m planning on re-doing over summer. For some reason, after my most recent move I could not organize my bookshelves the way I’d had them before. I looked at the pictures from my previous residence (I loved how they were organized!), but I just couldn’t get it right. 

This is what it looked like last March, right after I moved. I now have MANY more books. 

I typically organize by genre. On my bottom shelf I have literary YA, classics, Calvin & Hobbes, some gardening books and other things that fit oddly on the shelves, including my high school year books. 

Next up is the shelf with my two favorite and illustrious series, Outlander and Bloody Jack, as well as a bunch of other keepers. 

Then on the first shelf  I have all my TBR books, double stacked. 

On the top of the bookcase I have a pile of my literature anthologies and also more TBR books. 

My Kindle has no order whatsoever. I keep books in my carousel that I am going to read next, or are review books directly from the author that I need to get around to. 

My Goodreads shelves have the typical three, and then a few extra shelves that I just can’t keep up with, like my Story Plant books, historical reads, diverse reads, YA, fairytale…I’m just not good at remembering to put books on these shelves. 

How do you organize? Leave a comment with your response and your Friday Follow.

  1. OMGosh the whole no shelve thing on Kindle drives me insane! I mean, come on how hard would that be to let us organize our books beyond the carousel? I mentioned that in my post too 🙂

  2. I don’t organize my Kindle books at all either. I have a ton on there. I don’t delete them when I’ve read them either so I just have a ton to scroll through when I look for something to read. I do have my actual books well organized though. I have 10 bookshelves and they’re organized by genre and then by author and title, alphabetically. I do the same thing on Goodreads. I have a shelf for each genre, the normal Goodreads shelves, and also a shelf for TBRs that I need to purchase.

    My FF!

  3. I don’t really have a particular way of organizing my books. I have been running out of space though. So I might have to alter my untidy ways pretty soon! My kindle books aren’t organized at all either.

    New Bloglovin’ and email follower! 🙂

  4. I don’t have much organization on my kindle, either. I just never think of organizing stuff on there. 😀 Thanks for stopping by my blog. Hope you had a great weekend. Old follower here.
