Project Bookshelf Rearrange

I’ve always loved rearranging things whether it was furniture, books, movies, and even files on my computer.  When I was a freshman in college I rearranged my dorm room 9 times over the course of the year.  A couple of weeks ago I posted a question of the day regarding how people arrange their books to maximize space on their shelves. (You can read that post here!)  Ever since then I have been working on rearranging all of my bookshelves in order to make the best use of the space I have available.  The most important factor in the way I arrange my books is that I have to have my books by the same author together and keep my book series in their proper order.  After that I don’t really care as long as they all fit into place.  This morning I put the final touches on my rearrangement.  Here are some photo collages of my shelves and the way they are arranged now.

Tall bookshelf in my bedroom

This one is a tall 5 shelf bookcase from either Target or Ikea (I can’t remember exactly)

Squatty bookshelves in my bedroom

These are actually two different shelves stacked on top of each other. 

We have a little landing in our stairwell to the upstairs which has plenty of room for this skinny little 4 shelf bookcase that is the perfect size for mass market paperbacks.

In the living room I have these shelves with some of my favorite book series.  The third shelf is in the next photo.

The left photo is the 3rd shelf as mentioned above.  The right photo is my Anne Rice shelf (with a few others) that I have on the bottom shelf of my TV show bookcase.

And last but not least, just a few small shelves that are scattered around my living room.

I actually had a lot of fun doing this project and I just love seeing all of the different colors of my books!  Seeing all of them together in one place makes me really wish I could have an entire room of my house dedicated to my beautiful books.

  1. I love this! I am the same way – I love arranging and re-organizing things. My books have to be in order by series or author, as well. You have a really nice collection!!

    • Thank you! It’s so relaxing to arrange things and re-organize. I love it! I really want to try the KonMari method soon but know that I will have the hardest time with my books! I might just have to skip that part haha.
