    How did he get up there!? 🙂 I love this picture, and I love how you have your books organized by color! (I wish I didn’t have a librarian bug in my to group by Dewey decimal) Great picture. Love it.

      Yes, my org scheme is the despair of my librarian buddies. However, it works really well for me. Having never been trained on the Dewey decimal system myself, I tend to remember books by the color of their spines. Organizing books by color cuts down the search time tremendously for me. Also, turns out to be easier to add new books into the system, than if I were to be true to more rigorous sorting systems (Dewey, author’s last name, genre, etc.)

      Plus pretty. And before you ask, yes, if the book has a dust jacket, I keep the dust jacket on. I have it on good authority that 50% of a book’s value is in its dust jacket. 🙂
