I’m back welcome to my book cave winstonsdad new HQ

Well its been a week since I moved from my old house to our new home which I now have a room for all the books a personnel library come office to blog from and read. I had to decide whether to keep my old shelves or buy new but when looking at the shelves I had five mismatch units I decide to take the dive and buy six billy shelves a new chair and small table.



We managed to get in the weekend before and put the new book cases up. Then bit by bit I brought some books down and loaded the shelves. I wanted these new shelves to be more ordered than my shelves at the old house .



The plan was a shelf full of my hard backs then shelves for Penguins . Then to order the rest of the books by Country or region . I managed to do this . So I have French , German, Italian , Spanish Portuguese together. Then regional lit of Eastern Europe, Latin America  , Asia,Middle East and Africa. Th en I pulled certain publishers together and new books and hey presto I have ordered shelf and the new HQ for Winstonsdad . I also can now easily find the books for Next months Spanish Lit month which Richard and I are running again for the third year  soryy fourth year doesn’t time fly . Anyway I will be filling you all in near the time on my choices .

    That’s a smart way to arrange them. Which country do you have the most of?

    Looks good. I had mine almost as organised but entropy keeps infiltrating the system. I try to keep them organised by country but full shelves and ever growing piles on the floor can make it unwieldy.

    Nice cave! That looks like a great organisational system – I might try something similar when I grow up a bit. (Sarah, age 47) 😉

    So that’s why youve been so quiet lately. Those shelves look super organised now. What happens when you get a new batch of books coming in? Will yiu have to do a reorganisation. Or do they get stacked in a pile of their own?

    How fab! Would love a little book room like this. And the chair looks perfect.

    Beautiful! Really! My books are in alphabetical order by author for fiction and by subject matter for nonfiction with history divided into time periods and locale. Probably close to equal for region in fiction – except US. (heh)
