Many books never make it onto my bookshelf. For pride reasons, certain books just don't don't make the cut. The likes of Dan Brown and Emily Giffin I'll read, but nobody needs to know that when they come into my home. Don't get me wrong, I have some books up there (How to heal the hurt by hating, Barbie loves L.A., Position of the Day) that aren't exactly scholarly. The books I keep on the shelf are books that I would read again, and that look nice on display. I'm very visual, so my shelf is arranged by color. I can easily find any book I'm looking for because the cover art somehow sticks in my mind. I also like to break up the monotony of the shelf by stacking some books in piles. They're a little bit harder to get to this way, but I like the way it looks.
