Hello everyone! I hope you’re well!
Today I’m bringing you Five Different Ways to Organise Your Shelf! Before I start, though, I want to apologise for the lack of a blog post on Monday, it was my birthday and I was enjoying the festivities that come with that.
So, without further ado, here are Five Different Ways to Organise Your Shelf:
My preferred method of organisation! I’m currently organising by genre/series/random (my shelves are kind of a mess right now.), but normally it’s always colour coordinated. I had to keep some of that on my current shelf so I organised my paperbacks like this!
Colour Coordination doesn’t mean Rainbow, but it can. It means you put books of the same/similar colours of the same shelf/shelves.
If you’ve never tried organising by colour, I highly recommend it as it’s so much fun!
This is my current organisation system. I’m enjoying having my series together so much! This organisation method is pretty self-explanatory – it includes putting and having all your series together on the same shelf/shelves.
This can be quite aesthetically pleasing as it’s nice to have spines of series together! (unless they have cover changes, brrrr)
Genre or Category
I feel like this is the most popular and most used organisation system. Putting your books on shelves based on genre is normally a really good idea – especially if you have many bookshelves and you need to find books quickly.
As you can see in the above picture, I have a fantasy shelf, which encompasses many different fantasy novels.
I’m also currently loving this system as it’s quite nice to have all the genre in one place.
This categorical system is a bit more based on the person who owns the shelf. This method basically encompasses putting books you think look nice together.
I thought these books, though random, look nice together. I don’t know if I will get bored of this, but for now, I quite like it.
Preference or Significance
Ah, the sentimental organisation system. This is also accustomed to the owner of the shelf. This method includes putting your books in an order of preference, meaning, the books you like the most go first.
I enjoy doing this as it’s awesome to look at your shelves and see all your favourites in one place.
How do you organise your shelves? Let me know down in the comments.
Thanks for Reading – Nick.
