I think I‘m going to need another bookshelf... There are even more books out of the frame that got cut off too... #booknerd

TheAromaofBooks Husband and I spent all day today painting the new bookshelves - I have similar overflow problem! 😆 2w

Thanks for the tag @julesG ! Here's my rundown:
1. Its lack of pretension.
2. Ppl 's amphibious pets.
3. Are we doing a #holidayexchange this year?
4. Either once every few months or 3x/day.
5. Yep.
6. Keep it noncommercial!

Litsy is going wonky, so my original post seems to have gone missing. Trying again.

I am rearranging my bookshelves and need inspiration to help organize all my unread books to make them easier to find. Right now all my TBR books are scattered across multiple shelves, in stacks, on my desk...basically everywhere. It makes it hard to find books to fill reading challenge prompts

Show my your TBR bookcases! I need ideas! #tbrshelfie

MaGoose Only 20 unread books?! My, my, the author must be a newbie bookster. I have several thousand unread books, mostly on my Nook, but some actual print books. 😃 😄 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @MaGoose I actually edited that pic to say 200, but Litsy isn't working properly for me this morning. Not sure why! 4mo
TheSpineView I MUST file alphabetically by author. It's a thing, what can I say. Then the books I plan on reading first are on my library cart. 4mo

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Mine are all over too...the ones I‘m hoping to read sooner end up on my mini bookshelf/nightstand...and then as I create openings there, I pull in others from the larger shelves/piles mix. 4mo

4thhouseontheleft @Riveted_Reader_Melissa This is what I have been doing, but lately, a book comes to mind that I want to read, and then it takes me days to find it on one of my shelves. 😂 4mo
Sarahreadstoomuch I don‘t really have a great organization system (I know, I‘m a librarian, it‘s embarrassing) but I do take them all off the shelf once a year and reassess if I actually still want to read each book. Then I put them back, with the ones I‘m most excited about seeing again toward the top. 4mo

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I feel your pain!!! 4mo
Gissy Mine are all in boxes because I'm moving but I packed them in the way I will like to organize them, by genres. However, there are some books that I will organize in special way like the penguin special editions. 4mo
janeycanuck I get so confused by people who mix read and unread books. All my unread paper books are together, organized by year I acquired them and then by height within each year. Then I can stand and look at everything I haven‘t read yet when I‘m deciding what to read next. 4mo
4thhouseontheleft @janeycanuck That is impressive organization! I‘m still on the fence as to how I am going to reorganize my shelves. I‘m waiting till popsugar puts out the 2020 RC, so I can select books for prompts while I rearrange my shelves! 4mo
janeycanuck @4thhouseontheleft it works for me... and hopefully, you figure out what works for you, too! 4mo

Being home sick, has given me the time to finally scan in all my books on my bookshelf and sort them on my Goodreads account. I did give u through my ebooks though. I have 90 something on nook and 2 kindle books...
The 74 library reads are the books I've litteraly overdeived or went to a library for. I saved so much money that way >_> except I'd buy a book I loved after reading it at the library...

I tend to not finish a book if I don‘t like it. I used to force myself to finish (an old school habit), but I realized that you don‘t need to finish a book to get something out of it.

Geeklet I don‘t DNF that often but I‘m the type of person who genuinely enjoys bad things. I always watch garbage movies on Netflix. I guess I am easily amused by bad things. I will DNF things that are both boring and bad though. 9mo

Well the second shelf is assembled... and the kittehs have decided to stake their claim. 😸#catsoflitsy

Now to fill the shelves with books!

It‘s been a pretty sweet bookish weekend - starting with book club on Friday (discussing Her Body and Other Parties - so good!), assembling bookshelves and rearranging books at the homestead, and ending with volunteering at the library. 📚💜

Soubhiville Oooo, there‘s nothing that quite compares with new shelves! Exciting. I‘d be interested in more info on your bookclub if you‘re taking new members? 1y
Librariana I love that your kitties immediately staked their claim 😍 1y
Eyelit @Soubhiville it‘s mostly my coworkers and we tend to read feminist fiction/nonfiction... I bet they‘d be open to a new non coworker member. I‘ll check in with the group and get back to you! 😃 1y

I got the extra cabinet inserts for this one cause I‘d like some hidey-hole storage space that my cats can‘t access. Elliot has already tried to get in them from above. Cause if course. 😸
I anticipate the tidiness of these shelves will only last through the month... 😂

Bookshelves have arrived at the new place!!! 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Can't wait to start building when I get home tonight.

First we painted almost every room, then a massive cleaning, then we've been doing carloads and a truckload from #MiddleEarth to the new place, then taking apart and re-building some furniture, and now new bookcases to construct!

Moves! AAHHH! 😱🙈😆

MrBook @Lizpixie Of course you can 😁! We're selling it to help finance @BookBabe 's mom's care in the assisted living facility we found for her. Her father was taking care of her mom and since he passed away, we need to take her mom's care up a notch. Her mom needs 24/7 care and their expertise is awesome but costly 😕. So we're downsizing to help. We'll be in town now too and less than 10 minutes from work compared to the 45 I was doing. 1y
Lizpixie @MrBook I‘m so sorry about @BookBabe mum😞 I know how hard it is having to put a loved one in care, broke both the hubby & I‘s heart when our grandmother was put in care. I can only imagine imagine the cost you‘re facing in the US healthcare market. Huge Hugs to both of you❤️❤️❤️ (edited) 1y

I need a new bookshelf! We're in an apartment and want to maximize space but not break the bank. Ideally it is one we can grow with and either in a dark finish or a white finish. What are your best bookshelf recs?

I've been hearing a lot about Ikea Billy Bookcases but there are so many to pick from/if it is hard to out together. I HAVE assembled bookshelves before.
So please send me bookshelf recs (not recs for things to go ON the bookshelf 🤣)

BookwormAHN Presently, as someone who is sick of putting bookshelves together, I like the Origami ones at HSN. They are metal, lots of colors can be put together and moved easily. 2y

1. Rarely. But I do buy books for other people, I swap books on PaperbackSwap.com, and I donate a box every so often.

#OnlyReadersUnderstand
🌀First sorted by genre and then by several kinds of personal criteria. It‘s my own personal, rather complex system.
🌀whatever that person‘s favorite book is - doesn‘t matter to me if they keep books or not as long as they‘re reading!
🌀of course. Doesn‘t everyone?
