Bloggiesta Mini-Challenge: Organize Your Books

I'm so excited for this mini Bloggiesta! And we're hosting a mini-challenge this time around about Organizing your Books. 

Since ALA happened, I have piles of books on the ground and it's time to reorganize. I have a couple of bookshelves – I have a couple for finished books that I want to keep, one for books I've bought that I need to read, and a couple for review books or older books to read. It's sort of a jumble right now. So one of my goals this time was to reorganize my shelves physically. 

If you want to participate, take a before and after picture of your bookshelf or discuss what you changed and how you reorganized. My plan is to set up my review books by Pub Date, maybe even add sticky notes with updated pub dates. Here are some of my before pictures: 


These are two shelves of review books and some random others I need to go through.


All the books on the ground need to fit on this bookshelf, somehow… not sure how that is going to work yet.

Stay tuned for how pretty my shelves look after.

  1. Thanks for hosting this mini-challenge! It's reminding me that my bookshelves need some cleaning and organizing… We'll see if I get to that this weekend. If I do, I'll post the results here!
