Feature and Follow: Organizing Books--What??

Feature and Follow:
F&F is a weekly blog hop that consists of book bloggers. It is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The rules of involvement are simple:

1.) Link up on the blog hop at Alison Can Read or Parajunkee, 2.) follow the hosts via their network of choice, 3.) follow the weekly featured blog(s) via their network of choice (listed as "featured" in the blog list below), and lastly, 4) check out the rest of the blogs on the hop! If you become a new follower of a blog, let them know and they will follow you back.

The F&F is a great way to network, meet other book bloggers, and gain new followers. Even more so, it's a great way to drive fun discussion on a weekly topic.

This week's topic: How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading-device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads,Leafmarks orBooklikes. 

I'm going to talk about the different places I have organized books.

First, my library at home is not at all organized. We have three different bookcases where we keep books. Two of them are mine and one is my husbands. I have one of them with my most favorite books--a lot of those ones I read growing up. The other has all the other books, whether I've read them yet or not.

Most of the books I read/own are in my classroom at school. I share my books with my students--especially if they're good! At school, I don't even attempt any organization, except that the books are neatly placed on the shelves. 130 kids come in and out of my room each day and having much more of an organizational scheme is just impossible for me.

On Goodreads, I organize my TBR piles by time of the year. For example I have a summer 2015 list for all the books I want to read. If I don't get to it during the summer, I'll move it to my Fall list. When I'm finished reading them, I assign them to a genre as well. 

I'm not too big on organizing, but I am looking forward to organizing my summer 2015 list! 

I'm jealous of those of you who have immaculate and beautiful bookshelves! How do you organize?

Let me know if you're a new follower in the comments and I'll follow back!  Check out some of the other blogs on Feature & Follow.


  1. It sounds like you are super organised!
    I'm jealous of all the immaculate bookshelves too. Mine is full and so I have books all over the place.

  2. I just organize my physical copies alphabetically by author. Helps me find things easily that way :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm not following you via email. I love your idea of organizing by the seasons...I may have to um borrow that idea.

  4. I'm one of those crazy, super organized types with an immaculate bookcase at home LOL you'll have to check out my post to find out how mine's done ;) I'm super bad about my GRs shelves though, only use like the 3 basic ones it gives you. I see some people who have like 200 shelves on their acct & can't figure out where they find the time!!

  5. I have no order and no system. Which means I often forget what I have to read. But also that I get a nice surprise every now and then when I come across a forgotten book

  6. Hi! My physical library is a mess! I consider organizing my books, but I kind of like them being everywhere, unless I'm trying to find a certain book! My Goodreads is also messy, but I'd like to dedicate time to putting my books on different shelves! Happy reading! :)
