I spent the weekend reorganizing my bookshelves. They are now lovely and arranged alphabetically. Here are a few of the shelves.

Samplergal It‘s so fun to see what‘s on everyone‘s shelves! Thanks for sharing. Great job! 12mo
britt_brooke Nice!! 12mo
BarbaraBB Are all your rows double? That must be hard, to choose the books that go to the back! 12mo

batsy Nice! @BarbaraBB Most of mine are also double or even triple stacked, which is why it seems easier to buy a new book than pick out an unread one from my own shelves 😂😂 12mo
RidgewayGirl @BarbaraBB They are on these shelves, but every time I tidy them up, different books end up in front. It‘s like a whole new tbr every few months! And if I want a specific book, it‘s easy to find. 12mo
BarbaraBB That‘s a smart solution! 12mo
BarbaraBB @batsy 😂😂 12mo
Liz_M I love the alternating horizontal and vertical! 12mo
RidgewayGirl @Liz_M Thanks, I do, too. And it lets me fit a few more books on each shelf. 12mo

This might be my situation pretty soon here.

TheWordJar It's not a situation until the table is no longer touching the floor. But even then, would the situation be that bad?? 😂 3y

#TBRtemptation post 4! A beautifully illustrated book that will help you enhance every room with your books. Legendary designer Billy Baldwin said books are the best decoration, & this book shows classic approaches & new innovations, like causal stacks artfully placed on chairs & putting one on a pedestal as an objet d'art. Tips include organizing your shelves, situating bookcases, arrangements, etc. #blameLitsy #blameMrBook 😎

saguarosally Should I add a few book themed suggestions? 😇 3y
MrBook @saguarosally But, of course! 😊 3y
rustoryhuf I bought this book at the library sale. A lovely coffee table book that currently sits...on my coffee table *gasp* 3y
TheHeartlandBookFairy @TheBookHippie bought this book at a library sale. She then passed out on to me. It is a beautiful book, full of ideas! after reading it occurred to me, I already decorate with books LOL 😁 In some way or another, in most rooms in my house! I then put the book in one of my Little Free Libraries and it was almost immediately checked out 😁 Good book! 3y
