My book reviews, book news & random rants

Booking Through Thursday July 16

July 16th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


This week at Booking through Thursday, they’re (still) talking unread books:

Follow-up to last week’s question:
Do you keep all your unread books together, like books in a waiting room? Or are they scattered throughout your shelves, mingling like party-goers waiting for the host to come along?

I have no organization among my books whatsoever.  So my unread books are scattered throughout the house.  I have some in my book shelf piled in where ever they fit.  I also have a huge pile in my bedroom next to the bed and finally I have my pile of library books and books to review on my desk.  Every time I clean the house I seem to find at least one book I’ve bought or received in the mail that I forgot about and had stuck in some random spot.  So I really have no clue as to the total number of unread books I own.  Crazy I know.

    Oh geez. I have boxes on top of shelves on top of nooks and crannies crammed with waiting books.
    At one point I believe I had 3 boxes under my bed, two shelves worth, a whole wall of book towers and a couple other random places full of books.
    Since then I got rid of a lot, but I still have a tendency to build up books if I’m not careful!

    Usually I’m pretty organized about my books. We keep our mysteries, thrillers, horror etc. seperate in the guestroom because there’s not enough room in our main bookcase. But I recently discovered two copies of an unread Elizabeth George mystery on my Mt. TBR :-o Not as organized as I thought LOL.

    My btt-post.

    LOL. I have a ton of TBR books. I just got a bunch more at the Scholastic Book Sale and tonight our friends of the library book sale starts!

    Mine are all over the house — some in the bedroom bookcase, some in the bookcase in the living room, some on the couch where I am reading, some in the bookcase in the hallway, even in my sons room (and they are not just his books) and ALWAYS one in my purse and in the car and the doggie carrier in case I get stuck somewhere and I have to wait!

    There’s something to be said for disorganized, lol! I personally don’t like clutter, and with two boys in the house (1 little, 1 not) clutter’s just fact of life. So I organize what I can. =) I so need more bookcases!!
