Books, Books, Everywhere I Look

I finally organized my books last night. It was getting way out of control. I took every book I have off every bookshelf and stacked it on my bed, sorting as I went. What kind of piles did I sort them into you ask?

YA

Women's fiction/romance

Antique

Nonfiction

Picture books my children would murder me over if I got rid of them, like Ameilia Bedeila, Scuppers the Sailor Dog, etc.

Then I further sorted them.

YA
YA by Arcs
YA signed
YA author groupings
YA classics

Women's fiction/romance
Arcs
signed
author groupings

Oh, and I also had a to toss pile of books I will never read.

I have one lovely bookshelf in my livingroom and I now have enough YA that I brought them out and used that one. I love my YA books. I also have all of Jane Porter's single title books, which makes me happy cause she is a fab person and writer. I only have two Jennifer Crusie books, which is odd...I know I have more! If anyone wants to give me a gift... that would be it:)

All of my books are now cleaned and dusted, sitting perfectly at the edge of the shelf. What a huge sense of accomplishment. I have been wanting to do that for ages!And I have room for more books!

I need to put my books in order. They once were and then I ran out of shelves, and they are all willy nilly. Problem is, it would take me weeks to do it. And then I'd have to figure out where I'd put more shelves.

I loved Ameilia Bedeila!!!! As for books I only have one system. The books I've read and the books I haven't read (unfortch the wrong pile is bigger right now!!)
