At the recommendation of @mrozzz this got delivered today!!!! So I‘m reorganizing (again) my books and am looking for suggestions. Do you organize by genre? If not are your non-fiction and fiction at least separate? Graphic novels? Signed copies? Are your read and TBR books separate? Are they alphabetical? I want to hear all the different ways you shelve your books!!

EadieB I separate genres and then alphabetical by author. I get rid of the books I have already read by using paperbackswap.com or bookmooch.com where you get credits for other books to be sent to you. I have over 5,000 books so don‘t have room for the ones I‘ve read 2mo
teebe I split it into fiction and non-fiction. Non-fiction gets organized by category, then alphabetical by author. Fiction is all alphabetical by author. 2mo
Susanita It's a little quirky based on the available book shelves and what fits where. I have our old Encyclopedia bookcase which houses language reference books, an IKEA “billy“ bookcase which is mostly NF, and the “main“ bookcase which holds most of the rest. One shelf is just the right height for paperbacks, one holds TBR only, and the bottom shelf holds Civil War and spirituality books. (A weird combo, I know, but they fit!) 2mo
See All 12 Comments
Susanita I also have little stashes of particularly beloved books in various other places. 😊 2mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Very loosely organized by genre. 2mo
Leniverse Fiction and non-fiction separate. Non-fiction loosely by genre and alphabetical by author. Fiction by century (of publication not setting) and alphabetical, but with some genres separated out. Graphic novels are currently together, alphabetical, with no consideration for genre. It's cumbersome to reorganise whenever I add another book, but I love reorganising my shelves. 😂 2mo
Leniverse I sometimes operate with a next-up to be read shelf, which includes library books, but I will never keep all read and unread books separate. That would just make me feel guilty, I have so many not yet read books! 😬 2mo
KatieDid927 I keep most of them in two bookshelves in my media room organized alphabetically by author. However, in the living room I have a whole bookshelf dedicated to series, trilogies and duologies also alphabetical by author. I also have a dedicated Book of the Month shelf in the living room. Finally on top of my antique flip top desk in my living room I have my signed, first editions, collector's editions and anthologies. The ones I don't lend out. 2mo
Billypar I'm a monster - I have so little organization! Fiction is already 90% litfic, not enough genre picks for their own shelf (so far anyway). Some authors grouped together, some are chronological in order of when it was read. I prefer nonfiction on audio so very little print. Two unread shelves- active TBR and a 'maybe someday' one. Drama and philosophy (i.e. books from college). Poetry is scattered off shelves or I won't read it 😋 2mo
Lcsmcat Nonfiction is (usually) separate from fiction, and loosely organized by subject. Poetry has its own spot too. But then I put “beautifully bound” books together, regardless of type, and some editions (like my Modern Library editions) are shelved together regardless of type. So it‘s a mess that only I really understand. 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2mo
Lcsmcat And I segregate by language. All my French books are together, my husband‘s German books are in another place, and there‘s a smattering of Russian and Italian works. 2mo
CareBear @Lcsmcat @Billypar @KatieDid927 @Leniverse @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego @Susanita @teebe @EadieB thank you so much to all of you for your input! I‘ve got some great ideas now! 💕 2mo

CareBear @KatieDid927 so the gift swap can be 1 or 2 wrapped gifts - I know a few of us are also bringing books we have that we‘re willing to share or trade or whatever. So you can do that as well, but no need to wrap those and they wouldn‘t be part of the Yankee swap! 5mo
Crazeedi Have fun y'all!! Sounds like an awesome get together!😍 5mo
Amiable I‘ll be there! Looking forward to it! Since I‘ve never been to a meetup before, how will I know which group is you guys? 😀 5mo
j9brown Can't wait! 😁 5mo
KatieDid927 @CareBear Coolio, thanks! 👍🏼 5mo
CareBear @Amiable so the cafe is in the back of the bookstore and small - it‘ll be hard to miss us. If you‘re unsure I‘ll have the group name under “Carrie” or “Litsy” so you can ask a server to point us out. @ScientistSam and I will be there a little early just to make sure everything goes smoothly 5mo
riversong153 I read it as clitsy lol and had to do a double take 😂😂😂 5mo
CareBear @riversong153 🤣🤣🤣🤣 5mo
umbrellagirl @riversong153 that would be a different sort of get together 😆 5mo
Ncostell I‘ll be there, looking forward to it! 5mo

Happy independent bookstore day!

JanuarieTimewalker13 That‘s a great sign!! 6mo
Lovesbooks87 I love the sign! 6mo
CareBear @JanuarieTimewalker13 @Lovesbooks87 thanks! I do too. It‘s a local artist and she had a bunch of cool bookish sayings! It was hard picking just one. 6mo

JanuarieTimewalker13 Is she on Etsy? 6mo
CareBear @JanuarieTimewalker13 that‘s a good question I‘ll see what I can find out for you 6mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 No rush, I‘ll be moving within a year and I‘m trying to purchase only expendable stuff. But maybe after the move! 6mo
kspenmoll Great sign & great book choices! Hope to see you soon in Madison! 6mo

Just a reminder — two more weeks! I can‘t wait to see you all again (and meet some new people, too!)
I can‘t make a reservation but I can call ahead and let the cafe know how many people are coming. I have @Amiable @kspenmoll @Ncostell @mrozzz and @umbrellagirl as yeses. Let me know if that changes and if the rest of you can just let me know the day before, that would be great!
RJ Julia‘s Cafe, May 4th, 2:30 #ctlitsymeetup ⬇️

bookish_wookish Count me in too! 🙋🏼‍♀️ 6mo
bookish_wookish @ScientistSam Are you coming?! 6mo
CareBear Last year we did a yankee book swap - we each brought a book we enjoyed, used or new, and then chose numbers and picked a package in that order. I think we‘ll do that again but there‘s certainly no requirement to participate! 6mo

CareBear @bookish_wookish great! Got you, Amy! 6mo
MrBook How could I miss an opportunity with my #LitsyFamily! 😁 I‘m in. 6mo
bookish_wookish Sounds good! I think i may bring some other books too to pass on in case anyone would like to read them! 😊 6mo
Mdargusch Sounds fun! 6mo
ScientistSam Count me in, @CareBear @bookish_wookish! I'm planning on also bringing some books. (@carebear, are you still OK with picking me up in New Haven?) 6mo

Ncostell Looking forward to it! 6mo
kspenmoll Cannot wait! 6mo
j9brown @KatieDid927 and I still plan on coming! 6mo
Amiable Yay! Can you remind us again as we get closer about the book swap? I‘m leaving for an overseas vacation tomorrow for 8 days and my brain can only retain the immediate tasks necessary to get myself from now until then! 6mo
CareBear @ScientistSam yes! I‘ll email you and we can work out the details 😊 6mo
CareBear @bookish_wookish that‘s a great idea, I may do the same! I think @umbrellagirl mentioned doing that too! 6mo
CareBear @Amiable sure! Sounds awesome, have a great time!! 6mo
mrozzz Oh no I‘ll be there!! 6mo
umbrellagirl @bookish_wookish @ScientistSam yes, I‘m planning on bringing my tote of books that I‘m not keeping to share with the group. Always happy to ♻️ 6mo
umbrellagirl @CareBear I am in for swaps! 6mo
ScientistSam Yay, thanks @CareBear! I'm also on the slack group which might be easier for messaging? 6mo
MoMogrl I wish I could make it but my husband apparently made plans for us at the same time. 😥 5mo

rretzler Reading this myself right now. 6mo
ravenlee Checks all the boxes! 6mo
CareBear You too, @TheLibrarian ! George, you‘d be welcome @Trashcanman 6mo
CareBear @rretzler is it a reread for you or first time? 6mo
rretzler It is my first time reading the series. How about you? I found it a little slow up until page 105 when there was finally some action. Now I‘m about 40% through and it‘s really picking up. 6mo
CareBear @rretzler it‘s my first time reading the series, too! 6mo
rretzler I‘m joining the very loose group read of the series on LibraryThing. Are you a member? 6mo
CareBear @rretzler I am but I don‘t use it that often. The group sounds cool though - if you can find me and add me to the group I‘m carebear10712 over there. 😊 6mo
rretzler Friended you and invited you to the 75ers group which is doing the group read. You can find the into thread at https://www.librarything.com/topic/302886#. It‘s hosted/introduced by @humouress who is a member of Litsy and LT as well. We‘re all reading at varying speeds, so there is an intro thread and then a thread for each book so everyone can participate as they are reading the corresponding book. 6mo
CareBear @rretzler awesome, thanks! 6mo

I have plans tomorrow smack in the middle of the day but I‘m hoping to participate in #deweysreadathon as much as I can!!

Samplergal I signed up but have little hope of doing much with it. We are going to the beach tomorrow so maybe 2 hours. Good luck! (edited) 6mo
Soubhiville Yay! Have a great readathon! I hope you find plenty of reading time! 6mo
CareBear Thanks, Soubhi @Soubhiville and @Samplergal 🥳 6mo
