Hi readers! Something very exciting happened recently – I got brand new bookshelves. This is because my boyfriend and I have recently moved into our own apartment, and we bought a couple of bookshelves to house our collections.
As you may notice, I added extra shelves to my bookcases so I could add more paperbacks! I moved my abnormally large hardbacks to the smaller bookcase, where I left height for them. Other than that, I only had a few rules for organising my books.
- Don’t split series apart!
- Don’t split different editions of the same book apart.
- It’s okay to split different books by the same author apart as long as they’re not series.
Using these few rules, I created a beautiful hardback shelf, a few series shelves on both bookcases and my lovely boyfriend helped me create a gorgeous rainbow shelf which is mostly contemporaries!
The only thing I regret is not making myself a TBR shelf/section, but it wouldn’t be practical as I have many unread half-series etc! I’ll keep dreaming about storing my TBR in one of these instead…
How do you organise your shelves?
May your shelves forever overflow with books! ☽
