Bookshelf Tour – AKA: A Call For Help!
Ok first I have to warn you this will be scary. You may leave this blog today feeling jittery, and twitching at the horror these images will bring. You have been warned.

Voila, my shelves! *cringes*
How do I organize my books? Sometimes people ask me that. Well, I don’t O_O But, look! They’re still alive back there! It’s like book prison! Oh my god am I torturing my books? *sobs*
They did used to be all alphabetized – yep, every single one of them. And then blogging happened. At first I was only packing up these 3 shelves and I even had a system:
The top shelf was “read”, the middle was my “to-read ARCs”, the bottom was my “to-read me-books”, then it got out of hand and I had no more room, so I started packing on a new shelf, then another, and another, until it looks like the picture on top (notice how there are books ON THE FLOOR)! What’s worse is I give out books to family (and the crap ones to Jenni) ALL the time! I should open a library!
And then you’ll spot corners with swag and bookmarks and other bookish things that can fit in between the mess to make more mess:
Now I do have a bookshelf in the living room, too, which is kept clean and tidy. (Yes there is a lot of Nicholas Sparks; I had a phase, it passed.)
So this is how I don’t organize my books! 😀 I hope you didn’t cringe too much during his bookshelf tour! (Hey at least I take care of my spines!)
(throw em wherever there’s room)?
We’re looking for topic suggestions for future BGDC posts! What would YOU like to discuss (can be anything from vents to advice)?
Leave a suggestion via this short form!
