My OCD kicked in and I went around collecting books. No one leaves books around while looking for ideas or relearning a technique right? I found four and added them to the collection pile. Now to organizing those books.
Quietly talking to myself I go over the options:
A. By Alphabetical Order
B. Stuff them where they fit
C. By Height
D. By Subject (that's subjective if you think about it)
E. By Author
F. In Chronological Order
Wait..that's DH's way of doing his movies. He's corrupting me. I have a horrible vision of me spending two hours looking through the books by the date they came out.
All have pros/cons and I know I'm making it harder than it is. The book case isn't very deep so the wider books have to sit in the middle where the doors open. The books don't fit all the way across the shelf and DH and I share it so the books don't fall over.
Decision made. A litle of everything BUT option F.
*All the books with the stapled spines are together.
*The long books are at the beginning.
*The Viking Books are together.
*The wide books are scattered throughout so the doors shut right.
*Everything else is stuffed in.
The finished result:
Did you find DH's favorite book from the JoAnn Fabrics trip yesterday?
|From Quilted with Love|
If you found "Still Stripping After 25 Years" by Eleanor Burns there in the center, you are right. I've had that book since it first came out. You know, it's funny he's never noticed that book considering the shelves above and below are his. Oh..and the CD-ROM sets next to my books.
Maybe I should point it out to him and see how he reacts. By the way, DH doesn't go to strip clubs or do anything like that, which is what made it even funnier yesterday.
