I haven’t posted a book haul in a while and I know that a lot of people like reading/watching about them because hell, I love them.
However there is catch. They are really hard to keep track. Whenever I receive or buy a book, I typically just dump them on the shelf. I don’t have a system or some sort of separate shelf for new/unread books, they’re just all stuffed in one. My shelf is packed and when I mean ‘packed’, I mean PACKED. Here’s a little picture:
Do you get it now?
When it comes to the end of the month, I simply don’t remember which books I received that month and moreover, where they are. As the months pass by, things literally are piling up and you just end up with a cumulative mess of books. Did I mention it also takes significant effort to find the books, grab the books, place them in some sort of aesthetic order to take a photo of and then after, to put them all back? It takes up considerable time and energy and I just don’t.
I pose to you oh wise people of the book world:
How do you organise your bookshelf? Do you have some some sort of system for your new novels?
Tell me, I am desperate to know!
