Smile for the Shelfie! 

Take a picture of your bookshelves and/or stacks and explain how you organize your books!

If my books are on my bookshelf, they have to be in Alpha Alpha order by author last name.

Alpha Alpha order, for those of you who don’t know what that means, is an organization method in where you organize based on primary and secondary alphabet order. Example: AA, AB, AC, AD…etc

I may or may not have a slight compulsion over organization and cleaning. I blame my hispanic mother for this, who else had to wake up early every saturday to clean? However, when it comes to books? It is much more serious. It will literally bother me for days on end if I place a book on my book shelf not following the alpha alpha by last name rule.

The entire bookshelf will look wrong to me.

The other underlining compulsion that I have is series HAVE TO BE TOGETHER. I can’t have a series broken up onto two shelves, they have to be in one shelve.


Thankfully, I don’t have any series longer than 7 books.

I have ordered a second bookshelf since it seems like my little library is growing every month. I do plan to move all the long series to that shelf and have this one for single books only…but we’ll see how I fair with that.

How do you organize your bookshelf?
