Bookshelf Series: Kayla

The bookshelf is a unique personal space for any book enthusiast. We'll show you how we arrange ours.

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.

  1. I love the way your bookshelf looks, and I think it's awesome that you can find a book based on the way it looks. As you know, I just rearranged my fiction shelf. I still have to tackle the nonfiction shelf and then pretty-fy it, then I'll post. It's alphabetically ordered though, so it won't be as visually appealing as yours is.

  2. I love when books are arranged by color. Only one of my shelves is like that (sort of). The rest by genre/subject according to moi. I'll get the Ender's Game post together THIS weekend. Thanks for inspiring me. Long live the worms!

  3. I would love to arrange by color but what about all the halfsies? My borderline OCD does not abide. Right now we have ours sort of shelved by urgency (show pony in living room; work horse in office) and genre (loosely). Minus the big boys which all live on the bottom shelf.
