For the past year or so I've done a monthly feature called Confessions of a Serial Reader. This has been all about the differeent series I read. It's time to admit that I've run out of topics for this feature and it's has officially been retired.
I still plan to continue doing a monthly book related feature but take it beyond the series books so naturally the name has to change. In keeping with my commitment to Whimpulsiveness I wanted to leave it open to whatever sritkes my fancy as a monthly topic. From now on Confessions of a Serial Reader will be replaced with Touring my TBR Spreadsheet and Shelves.
I don't have any specific list of topics but I've enjoyed the monthly break from routine posts that Confessions of a Serial Reader gave me and it's time to expand the subject matter.
So lets begin with the basics. The first topic for Touring my TBR Spreadsheet and Shelves is my bookshelves.
My EMPTY bookshelves.
This hasn't happened since the day we brought them home from Costco and put them together.
We had to empty out the shelves so we coud put new carpet down. In the process we donated about 400 books that used to be on the shelves to make room. Now the books we kept are boxed up and ready to return the the shelves along with all the piles of books that were on various dressers, tables and shelves throughout the house.
So I now have the opportunity for a compelely fresh start at arranging the books as I put them back. Honestly this is something I've been looking forward to from the moment that the cleaning and purging for new carpet began.
I know I want to set up a To Be Read section for my unread books and a TBR shelf for The Hubster too but other than that I'm not sure how I want to organize the rest of the books.
I'm looking for ideas and inspiration. I know that I do not want to organize them by color. That's cool as artwork but I need to be able to find the book I'm looking for whether or not I can remember what color the spine might be.
So tell me - how do you have your bookshelves organized?
