Interesting Bookshelves

"A room without books is like a body without a soul." - Marcus Tullius Cicero

Hey everyone- Andie here!

So, I'm probably the last person on planet earth to make the jump, but I just got a kindle a few months ago.  It took me a while to embrace the idea.  For the longest time I was pretty adamantly against it because I felt like I was selling out on books!  I mean hello, you kind of can't beat the feel & smell & experience of holding a beautiful, tangible book in your hands, right?  Well, despite being a hater at first, I have to admit that I really enjoy my kindle.  I love that I can throw it in my purse and read when I get a few extra minutes on the go, and that I essentially have an entire library of books with me at all times!  Now that's power!

While I'm certainly a fan of the convenience & ease of the kindle, I still swoon at the sight of a pretty book collection that is tastefully & artfully displayed!  Most of us have somewhat of a book collection in our homes, but how you present it changes things!  Have you put time & thought into how your books are arranged and presented, or are they just haphazardly thrown onto a shelf?  Here are a few ideas to spice up the way your book collection looks:

- Snag a unique bookshelf (like some of the shelves pictured below).  Total show stopper!

- Organize by color.  I'm way too disorganized to do this, but it looks amazing!!

- Wrap your ugly books in colorful wrapping paper or wall paper to make them look prettier on your shelf.

- Organize by genre.

- Organize by book title.

- Organize by author's name.

- Organize by size of book.

- Organize by preference or reading order. (Which books are your classic standbys, and which ones haven't you read yet?) 

 

Any other ideas?  What am I missing here?  How do you organize your books?  And now, for some inspiration........
