Question: How do you organize your books?
So, confession time. I have had inadequate shelving for my books for years, and I hate that they end up in stacks. Its hard to keep track of them, I am not always sure what I do or do not have a copy of, etc. So, I am really happy I finally ordered some bookcases that should let me finally sort, organize and see what I have. So, when I go to fill them, I am curious, what shelving strategy should I use? I am sure that I want a functional organization method versus aesthetic (so I’m not sorting by color or size). My initial inclination is to just sort by author last name, but I am also considering making a section for read versus unread, or maybe sorting by genre. So, while I am deciding, I thought I would see what others like to do, what system works best for you (for those of you out there that might be disciplined enough to actually stick to a system.
