October is National Book Month, and today, I want to talk about how we store our books on our bookshelves. More specifically, I want to see your books on your bookshelves.
This weekend, I had an interesting conversation about both creative types of bookstorage (inspiration?) and the many ways people arrange their bookshelves. By color, by size, by binding, by subject…. or all of those categories within subcategories, even. In order of acquisition? Alphabetical? And so, I want to see your bookshelves. Or, your favorite bookshelf.
Are your shelves tidy or messy? Do you have a system or is it a book free-for-all? Let’s hear it. For bonus points, take a photograph, or take a few photographs, even, and throw them into the Chicago Subtext flickr pool, give us a shout in the comments section and let us know what’s what and which belongs to whom. Ready? Go!
