Today's episode is a little different, in a GREAT way. I asked 14 different podcast listeners about (including me) how they organize their bookshelves … and today I’m sharing their ideas with you. Some readers even provided photos of their methods—keep scrolling to take a peek!
Ever-popular genre and color organization came up of course, but we also get to hear about the uniquely-displayed special interest book collections some of you have, including a bookshelf entirely dedicated to one specific period of history, and another home library entirely organized with book-lending in mind. And yes, of course, at the end of today’s episode I’ll tell you about my own shelves. WOW, that has been a journey—and I still keep changing it up!
