Many years I lamented the squareness of my bookshelf. That bookshelf is so square, no matter which organization method I chose, practically every single cubby would have a gap. I detested that because this meant I couldn’t organise according to author, which is how I wanted to arrange my books for the longest time. In the end I settled for arranging books according to size, just so I wouldn’t have any ghastly gaps.
Last year I decided to try something new to me: arrange books according to colour. I had my reservations because I wondered if I would be able to find my books again. I didn’t think I’d be able to remember the colour, let alone shade of every title. I was right, I don’t remember all the colours. But since I don’t own a million books, I still manage to find any given title fairly quickly.
The best part about colour organising bookshelves is that they instantly brighten up any room with the vibrant pops of colour. And most importantly, gaps are so much easier to fill because my books don’t have to be in a very specific spot as they would have to be in bookshelves organized accord to author or title.
