How Do You Shelve Your Books?

Posted by: Linda Mooney
Okay, I admit it. I thrive in chaos. Just take a good look at one of my bookshelves

The other day, my neighbor came into my office to pick up a package UPS had left with us instead of leaving it on their porch, where it could have been stolen. Anyway, she asked me how I could find a particular book "in that mess". Actually, I don't have a problem. I pretty much know the general area (which shelf, left or right side) where each book is. But it got me to thinking.

How do you shelve your books?

I thought about starting a poll, but decided not to. Instead, just post a comment below.

For your print books, do you do it:

1. alphabetically by title
2. alphabetically by author name

3. somewhat chronologically -- latest bought goes at the end of the row (or top of the pile).
4. by genre
5. other (explain)

Same for your books on your ereader. 

As you can see, I go by number 5 when it comes to my print books. By "other", it's basically sticking it wherever I can find an empty spot. And on my kindle, it's chronologically.

Please tell me I'm not alone!

In the not too distant future, the human population is nearly wiped out by an alien invasion. Six years after the initial attack, Emlee Dow isn’t too worried about the continuing alien presence any longer. It’s the few humans left who pose a greater threat. Food and supplies are hard to come by, making survival an ever increasing struggle. Luckily, she finds refuge in an undiscovered basement room, containing enough supplies to last weeks.

Feeling full and relatively safe, Emlee decides to rest while she can. She wasn’t expecting her world to be turned upside down when she woke. Or for the already upside down world to be flipped right side up, pre-destruction. Thrown into the past, she meets Mykail, and has only days to convince him she’s not crazy before history repeats itself…or is it the future?

In these difficult and trying times, it’s hard to know who to trust. Just when you find someone, they’re lost just as quickly.

Can love be found again in the future? Or is it a thing of the past?  

Warning! Contains several outfit changes, broom handle self-defense, a spare key fob, expired food, freckles, the sound of thunder, a never-ending search for sanity in a world gone insane, and two people forced to wait years before love triumphs.

  1. My husband and I own a LOT of books. They are shelves alphabetically by authors last name, then by title, keeping series together. But the paperbacks and hardcovers are separated out and so is the non-fiction.

    On my ereader, I default to the most recently bought list, but I do use Kobo's Collections feature so that if I want to search by genre I can.
