Yesterday we had fajitas! They were delicious. Thank you to everyone who voted in the poll.
Right now, I have bookshelves that are not organized in any way. This is somewhat unfortunate when I am trying to find books.
I know what organization scheme I want: fiction separated from nonfiction, fiction sorted by author and then by series and then by title, nonfiction separated by subject and then by author. Graphic novels, manga, and RPG sourcebooks in their own section, sorted by type and then by series and then in internal ordering. Anthologies in their own sections, sorted by genre and then editor. Cookbooks are already in their own section, but need to be sorted by genre and then by author. I am undecided on whether artbooks will go in their own section or in the art section of nonfiction.
What I'm trying to figure out is:
- Is there any way to achieve this system of organization without pulling every book I own off the shelves and onto the floor, and then sorting them? I fear for what will happen if I pull every book off the shelves and stack them up on the floor. (I suspect not, but hope springs eternal.)
- Assuming I must pull everything off the shelves to do the sorting: do you have any recommendation for how to do this in the way that is most efficient/least likely to leave me with stacks of books all over my floor for the next six months?
(I also hope to catalog them in Goodreads, but that is going to necessarily happen after, not before, the physical sorting and organization.)
Thank you. :D
