How do you arrange your collection of books?

This post is a response to The Guardian’s poll on home library. Most of the readers (37%) organised their home library according to genre. This is followed closely with ‘alphabetically by author’ (18%) and ‘totally random’ (14%). Check out photo contributions from the readers to The Guardian. My favourite is definitely ‘Literary Spectrum’ (the one featured in the article) because I have never seen a personal collection of books that are arranged by colour.

I organise my books according to genre. However nowadays my books tend to be randomly placed due to the lack of shelf space. I have a L-shaped built-in bookshelf. If you look at my ‘shelfies’ (below), the books that are lying horizontally are newer than those that are standing.

  1. I haven’t seen many L-shaped bookshelves around. I think your shelves are very cool. The Literary Spectrum is beautiful!

  2. Thanks. I love your blog because it gives me so many ideas for my own blog. 🙂

  3. Aw thank you! That just made my day a million times better! 🙂
