Some Weekend Bookshelf Rearrangements (Part 1)

A few readers took the bookshelf challenge this weekend and rearranged their books by color. I think the results are pretty fantastic.
Carolinacosmina writes, "Thanks for putting out the challenge! I arranged them by color last spring but wasn't happy with it, plus I just don't have enough books yet. So I bought some mirror tiles from Ikea yesterday, ran them along two shelves, and did some rearranging, and I'm so pleased with it!"

Cocochic writes, "I don't have nearly as many books as you but I still had fun! My hubby keeps all of our Apple boxes. The apple sculpture is a piece he did in college. It's mostly his computer books but I have some of my magazines and children's books snuck in there. My books stay in the bedroom for close reach!"


While some readers thought this wasn't the best way to arrange books, I'm still a big fan. Stay tuned, because I'll have before-and-after pictures later today of another reader's newly organized shelves. Anyone else out there rearrange their bookshelves over the weekend?

I agree with laBIMeanie. This just won't work if you have a lot of books. I have about 1500 books and I wouldn't ever be able to find anything if they were arranged by color.

I Have a room dedicated to books, my own library if you will. Neat idea but not handly for keeping track of things by author or by catagory.
