Booking Through Thursday – Organisation

13 Sep

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly bookish meme held over on Booking Through Thursday!

How do you organize/store your books? Do you go through them often? Or
do you pretty much just shelve them and then leave them alone until
you need them?

Well I do have a pretty crazy way of sorting through my books. I have two shelves of books that i love and will read again. These include my Harry Potter books and some of my favourite classics.

The rest of my books are TBR books and these are organised by when i got them. So the oldest book in my collection is first in line to be read and then the newest book to me is at the end of the shelves. I dont organise them in any other way as i like to read my books in a certain order and this helps me to do it!

I also have about 150 e-books on my kindle organised by when i brought them so thats how i read on that too!

    I shelve my books and read them when ever I choose.

    I am limited in space and have my new ones on a cabinet and old ones on a book shelf.

    I sort alphabetically, except for the TBRs. Those are in stacks, but the stacks have dwindled….yay! Here’s MY BTT POST

    Oh wow, I wish I was anywhere near this organised. Just like Ann, I just put them in my shelves and let destiny decide when I read what, unless they’re review requests. Then I make sure I read them! I do keep my Kindle organised, but not by buy date! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    You’re good to keep up with which ones you’ve had the longest. I always feel bad for the books on my shelves that have been there forever and still haven’t been read.
