Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
This week’s question:
How do you organize/store your books? Do you go through them often? Or do you pretty much just shelve them and then leave them alone until you need them?
I love this question and will enjoy seeing how everyone answers.
In my office/reading room, I have 3 bookcases , each having a special purpose. When I receive a book, the first thing I do is catalogue it to my spreadsheet with the date received, who it is from and any other notations. I then put a post-it with the same information on the front cover. I would be lost without my spreadsheet especially for those books that are in my EReaders.
It then goes into my big TBR 5 shelf bookcase, in the order received. I am now up to 2 1/2 shelves for requested reviews. The bottom 2 shelves are for personal TBRs that I have either won or purchased. I also have another smaller 3 shelf bookcase that holds my prized possesions, the signed books, on the first shelf. The other 2 shelves holds books I have won and need TBR. The 3rd bookcase is a corner unit, which is a sentimental piece of furniture. It was my grandmother’s, and even though it doesn’t match the other furniture in my office, I think of her when I look at it. This bookcase holds the books I have read along with some photo albumns.
However, there may be some rearrangement this coming weekend, since I ordered a new desk for my office, which is supposed to be delivered this week. I am so excited because my desk now is a mess, unable to hold all my computer and office items. This is the one I purchased:

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia of A girl and her books and is now on tour.
According to Marcia, “Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles and humongous wish lists.”
