I worked at the library today, but I did all my final holiday weekend work for my displays yesterday. I had to replenish the #BeachReads Display with a looot of books. First of two stacks. 😁

Have you read any of these?!

readingjedi I've read Me Before You. I found it problematic on several counts. 3w

Soooo... I started a midnight project while I was listening to my last audiobook. I had to stop for the night, since it‘s going on 2am and I work tomorrow morning. I only have the top 3 shelves done. I‘ll finish it off tomorrow, but I‘m not sure how I feel about organizing by color. Normally I do by height, but I thought I‘d change it up. 🤷🏻‍♀️

What do you guys think? Are you a fan of rainbow bookshelves?

Laru79 They look so great! I‘m an alphabetical shelver, both because I work in a library and also because I find it easier to find what I want! 1mo
BookwormAHN I think they look really cool but I'm not sure how practical they are. I personally like to group authors or at least subjects together 😺 1mo
annamatopoetry Looks awesome! Organizing by color is the only way for me to achieve any kind of visual harmony in the room with the bookshelves (I identify books by color anyway, and sort fiction and nonfiction separately.) 1mo

Velvetfur That looks fantastic! I have to admit I order by subject, but this does look really good. I love how there's all the other books around the bookcase too 😁 1mo
Powered_By_Plants 😍love this! 🌈 Looks very aesthetically pleasing . Impressive collection! Is this your TBR books? I always charity shop books Iv read but after seeing this maybe I should grow my collection 😁 look wonderful 💕 1mo
Cathythoughts I love the rainbow shelves 👍🏻♥️ 1mo
Deifio Looks fantastic! I mostly sort alphabetically. Just a quick question what do you do when books in a series change colour (e.g. book 1 is red and book 2 is yellow)? 1mo
kezzlou85 Very pretty. 1mo
ljuliel Looks very organized and pretty done in colors. 1mo
Texreader Pretty! But I prefer alphabetical. Ditto question from @Deifio 1mo
Megabooks Looks really nice!! 👍🏻👍🏻 1mo
JazzFeathers It looks good to me! 1mo
jb72 It looks pretty, but wow that‘s a lot of work. 1mo
jewright It‘s pretty! I have mine organized by type of book and alphabetically by author. Never even thought of rainbow! 1mo
Clwojick @Powered_By_Plants yeah! All TBR with the exception of 10 or so classics, and my stack of children‘s books. I donate all my books after I‘ve read them as well. 🤩 1mo
Clwojick @Deifio good question, since I ran into this often last night. I just tested it out in both color sections, and seen which one looked better. 1mo
Clwojick @Texreader ☝️☝️☝️☝️ 1mo
Clwojick @jb72 hahaha! Yeah, I should‘ve known I‘d get completed absorbed into the project... hence being away until 4am 😴🙈 1mo
MrT Superb! That would so mess with my OCD/anxiety though 🤯 1mo
Clwojick @MrT yeah... I looked at it again this morning, and I‘m thinking I‘m going to change it up again when I get home. Weird things bother me, so for some reason this layout is harder for me then the mix matched way i originally had them in. Maybe I‘ll try alphabetically next! 🙈 1mo
MrT I'm strictly alphabetical by author, then publication date, by hardback, paperback 1mo
Scochrane26 I am not a fan of rainbow because I‘m too weirded out by splitting up authors‘ books that should go together. But, everyone has different preferences. 1mo
marleed My front room shelves are organized by color for the season (right now back-to-school yellow, red, white). That means my ‘reading room‘ wall of shelves are always changing and I love that since it lets me ‘play‘ with my books. I keep meaningful books - even thrift buy after already reading/listening to a library copy! I also donate about 5-10 books a month to LFLs or the library. I have an interior LFL shelf for visitors! 1mo
SilverShanica I agree with @Scochrane26 - series need to stay together (in series order). But it certainly looks cool. 1mo
Daisey I always think shelves by color look beautiful, but I could never organize my own books that way. I want authors‘ books together, and I‘m sure I wouldn‘t be able to find something since I would forget the color. 1mo

Serpent on the Rock | Kurt Eichenwald

Adding this #Nonfiction #historical account to my #TBR stack. Time to investigate if this is as boring as others find it.
Love this investigative author!

⭐⭐⭐⭐
An excellent analysis of the '08 #financial collapse by one of my favorite authors. A little drier & slower paced than I expected.
Now it's time to check out the movie adaptation.

Hilarious, biting satire that skewers race, class, and society as a whole. Very much a sendup of 1980s New York City, the themes are equally as touchy and poignant in 2019.

This book was a gift from the lovely @CarolynM (not in the photo - this is my spot at the new cafe down the road. It‘s Vietnamese, keen to try Banh Mi but they‘ve sold out today)
A sharp and insightful memoir of six years in Kate‘s life when two crises converged - her husband‘s Alzheimers and the financial crisis of 2002 at the NY corporation where she worked. Her scathing analysis of corporate life makes excellent reading ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Centique Thank you @CarolynM !😘 3mo
MrsMalaprop I have had this on my #tbr stack for years. Really need to get to it! 3mo
CarolynM I'm very glad you liked it🙂 3mo
