I organized my bookcases today. When I first put them up at the end of last year, I sorted all the books alphabetically by author. But that was becoming problematic because, when you get a new book by an author and you need to put it on the shelf but there’s no more room, you have to shift everything around. And then repeat the process the next time it happens.
SO this time I sorted the books by genre and grouped them by author. I think this will be much more efficient in the long run. Easier to maintain, etc.
Zuzu “helped”. Which really means she planted herself between me and the bookcase so I had no choice but to pet her.
That is her “WOW. That’s a BIG tower of books you got there, Mom” face. The ear kills me.
Then I spent some time organizing my review list on Trello. Have you played around with Trello yet? It’s fantastic especially for fluid things like reviews that may need to be moved around. Plus I can create reusable checklists for the same blogging tasks I do over and over with each book. Did I receive it? Have I read it? Have I posted the review to the blog? Did I check Netgalley/Edelweiss to post my review there? Did I post to Amazon? B&N? Goodreads? (And etc. etc.) Labels so I can keep track of which of my review copies are digital and which are print. I shall have to do a separate post some day on the wonders of Trello.
What about you? How do YOU organize your books?
