So. In a fit of annoyance at the impossibility to quickly find a particular book among those lining the living room bookshelf, I took upon myself to rearrange the books, this time by author's last name. (It was originally sorted by colour by my sister years ago. Aesthetically pleasing, yes, but there's no way I'd be able to remember what colour that Neil Gaiman book was.) I also lugged down some of the books that were in my room because the shelves were getting too full, and, well, if I kept my Dorothy Dunnett books to myself how was I supposed to entice other people into reading them?

Most the books left in my room are the unread ones -- those already take two rows of my shelf:

I'm currently reading Iris Murdoch's The Sea, The Sea.

The downstairs bookshelves are the generic Ikea ones. Yeah, we're boring. It's not really that alphabetical -- L'Engle is there beside Le Carre and Lanagan, and I'll be damned if I have to make sense whether or not it should go under E or L or something else altogether (I am still somewhat disgruntled that I even bothered with sorting by last name; probably should've just gone by the name printed on the cover so that Madeline goes with Mary and Margo); series with different authors are still kept together; some of the larger books got pushed towards the end of the shelves so it wouldn't look that messy.

This also means I need to shift books every time I want to add new ones to the shelves. I will admit it: this has already happened. I ended up putting the books on the appropriate shelf without actually shelving them; I'll get to it one of these days when the unshelved books threaten to topple over.


Now, if I only could get some reading done . . . I have next Monday off and Tuesday's a public holiday, so here's to catching up with some reading. Or sleep. We'll see.

Your book..

Three of your books are still with me so be sure to leave some space for them. I'll make sure to return them to you by end of September. Ok x?
