Feminist Reflections is a feature I created on my blog to share my personal thoughts.
Something about me and my bookish habits.
SO, let's backtrack a little.. I'm a neat freak, I really am. I'm the type of person who carries a special case for her pencils and pens. You can probably tell by how I organize my reviews with categories.. My room is super clean as well, and I don't like my things to get dirty or disorganized. I don't like it when people touch my things.. and my hair, it's not being selfish. I don't mind sharing, but I try really hard to clean my belongings, and if someone is careless and gets them dirty, it enrages me. If there is a fingerprint on a new book, I get paranoid and I wipe the book clean. My family thinks I'm a freak, but wouldn't you clean your phone's screen too? As for the rest of my house, I don't care if it's organized(lol) it's my parent's house that's why. Otherwise if it was mine, yep it would be super clean.
Every few months I can get disorganized with my bookshelves when I run out of space. Then I have to stack the books on the wood floor and they pile up. I would usually buy another bookshelf later on, but I would get lazy and buy it a couple of months later. I would love to have my own library in my house one day, I would stay there the whole day. I have been reading constantly and collecting books since I was 12 years old. I'm 21 now, and I own two bookshelves.
How do you stay organized with your bookshelf(s)?
I try to be creative, and I have many different ways of organizing my books.
- Height Size
- Texture/ Hardcover or paperback grouping
- Same author books grouping
- Favorites shelf
- TBR books shelf
- Series grouping
- ARC/Finished copies shelves
- Double row in each shelf with books I like the most in the front
- Stacking books on top of each other
Here is a closeup of the front and back rows of my bookshelf with three shelves.
I double row them so it allows me more room to place my books.
My new bookshelf with the four shelves has rows higher than usual
so it allows me to stacks books on top of the ones already there.
It gives me more room as well, and I personally like it as well.
Peep my blog planner on my shelf. I shelved it as a book.
How do you guys stay organized with your books and bookshelves?
Anybody else gets paranoid with their belongings as well?
