Booking Through Thursday: Storage

This week’s question is suggested by Kat:

I recently got new bookshelves for my room, and I’m just loving them. Spent the afternoon putting up my books and sharing it on my blog . One of my friends asked a question and I thought it would be a great BTT question. So from Tina & myself, we’d like to know “How do you arrange your books on your shelves? Is it by author, by genre, or you just put it where it falls on?”

Some of my bookshelves

My storage format kind of changes from one way to another. One moment, I arranged my books however I wished; the next, by author (see my housekeeping by author post). Then I switched to the latest acquired books being placed right at the top of the shelves and the read ones below. Nowadays, my top shelves are decked with books that I want to read immediately, according to my mood.

The photo above shows a new DIY bookshelf (the one with a couple of box sets on top) which I've just finished putting together last week. That shelf is dedicated solely to books selected for the 999 Challenge.

I do separate out fictions from the other types such as business books, self-helps, reference materials, Christian living, and so on.

I'm very interested to know how you store your books!
