I have more than 530 books scattered across 8 or so book cases around my apartment. They are almost organized. By that I mean I have about 10 different organizational systems that I've applied to my books over the years, and elements of all those systems are still in place.
I tried arranging them by genre, author, work/non-work, fiction/non-fiction, size, to read/already read, literature/guilty pleasure, personal era in which acquired, and more.
Since I now have to take everything off the shelves and move the shelves, I can try to enforce some organizational schema.
So, I'm asking my fellow book junkies for help. How do you organize your personal library? And does it work?
And should I even bother trying?
