This book was smart, funny, warm and a great pick me up! I adored all the book references and the love of reading as the bonding agent for some of the characters.

Thanks for the recommendation, @MicheleinPhilly !

MicheleinPhilly My pleasure! This book warmed my heart and broke me out of a monthlong slump. So glad you enjoyed! 1w

This was a really really tough read for me. I had to put it down in spots. But damn, her writing is just so beautiful. Her characters are so flawed and three-dimensional and human and I feel like, through her books, I‘ve been to Nigeria. Read her if you haven‘t yet.

This time of year is the worst for my anxiety. I sort of realized I may not be helping myself with my heavy book choices. So...what are some of your favorite happier/lighter reads? I want to have a list to get me through the year. Thanks! 💕

Sharpeipup Anything by Janet Evanovich she has me laughing out loud 3w
GypsyKat I always reread the Harry Potter series when I‘m depressed/anxious. Anne of Green Gables is also a favorite feel good read. 3w

CareBear @MicheleinPhilly this one looks particularly good! 3w
MicheleinPhilly It was! I have been in such a funk (and also suffer with anxiety) and it was such a mood booster. 3w
ljuliel Maeve Binchy and Rosamunde Pilcher books. Both very good authors that divert your attention and help you to focus on THEIR world instead of your own. They sorta take you away for awhile. 3w
SomedayAlmost Gay Yellen‘s “Body Next Door” for some fun, well-written, smart romantic suspense that keeps you guessing and entertains. Also, rich world-building is a respite. I‘ve always loved the Narnia series. (edited) 3w

At the recommendation of @mrozzz this got delivered today!!!! So I‘m reorganizing (again) my books and am looking for suggestions. Do you organize by genre? If not are your non-fiction and fiction at least separate? Graphic novels? Signed copies? Are your read and TBR books separate? Are they alphabetical? I want to hear all the different ways you shelve your books!!

EadieB I separate genres and then alphabetical by author. I get rid of the books I have already read by using paperbackswap.com or bookmooch.com where you get credits for other books to be sent to you. I have over 5,000 books so don‘t have room for the ones I‘ve read 4mo
teebe I split it into fiction and non-fiction. Non-fiction gets organized by category, then alphabetical by author. Fiction is all alphabetical by author. 4mo
Susanita It's a little quirky based on the available book shelves and what fits where. I have our old Encyclopedia bookcase which houses language reference books, an IKEA “billy“ bookcase which is mostly NF, and the “main“ bookcase which holds most of the rest. One shelf is just the right height for paperbacks, one holds TBR only, and the bottom shelf holds Civil War and spirituality books. (A weird combo, I know, but they fit!) 4mo
See All 12 Comments
Susanita I also have little stashes of particularly beloved books in various other places. 😊 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Very loosely organized by genre. 4mo
Leniverse Fiction and non-fiction separate. Non-fiction loosely by genre and alphabetical by author. Fiction by century (of publication not setting) and alphabetical, but with some genres separated out. Graphic novels are currently together, alphabetical, with no consideration for genre. It's cumbersome to reorganise whenever I add another book, but I love reorganising my shelves. 😂 4mo
Leniverse I sometimes operate with a next-up to be read shelf, which includes library books, but I will never keep all read and unread books separate. That would just make me feel guilty, I have so many not yet read books! 😬 4mo
KatieDid927 I keep most of them in two bookshelves in my media room organized alphabetically by author. However, in the living room I have a whole bookshelf dedicated to series, trilogies and duologies also alphabetical by author. I also have a dedicated Book of the Month shelf in the living room. Finally on top of my antique flip top desk in my living room I have my signed, first editions, collector's editions and anthologies. The ones I don't lend out. 4mo
Billypar I'm a monster - I have so little organization! Fiction is already 90% litfic, not enough genre picks for their own shelf (so far anyway). Some authors grouped together, some are chronological in order of when it was read. I prefer nonfiction on audio so very little print. Two unread shelves- active TBR and a 'maybe someday' one. Drama and philosophy (i.e. books from college). Poetry is scattered off shelves or I won't read it 😋 4mo
Lcsmcat Nonfiction is (usually) separate from fiction, and loosely organized by subject. Poetry has its own spot too. But then I put “beautifully bound” books together, regardless of type, and some editions (like my Modern Library editions) are shelved together regardless of type. So it‘s a mess that only I really understand. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 4mo
Lcsmcat And I segregate by language. All my French books are together, my husband‘s German books are in another place, and there‘s a smattering of Russian and Italian works. 4mo
CareBear @Lcsmcat @Billypar @KatieDid927 @Leniverse @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Susanita @teebe @EadieB thank you so much to all of you for your input! I‘ve got some great ideas now! 💕 4mo
