5 Ways to Organize your Bookshelf!

Hey guys,

So I wanted to do a Bookshelf Organization post so that if you ever feel bored and up to the challenge, you can re-organize your bookshelf. Anyway enough talk let’s start this thing!

Ways to do your

  1.   Rainbow

If you have not already thought of this you can organize your books by color. It’s such a fun way and visually pleasing way to set your books up on your shelf, but sometimes it’s a pain to remember what color the spine of your book was if you’re looking for it.

2.  Alphabetical.

You could also set your books in order from A-Z by author last name or by title. But I mean just in general to organize them from A-Z.

3. Height

Your could also organize your books by height like have them all gradually get bigger or smaller. I personally like this one the most cause I like seeing all of my hardcovers sitting next to each other and looking all perfect.


4. Genre

Another way you could organize the shelves is if you put the fantasies with fantasies, the Mysteries with the Mysteries and so forth. If it was my bookshelf it would be all fantasies and like four mysteries in a little corner in the left.

5. Chronological

Basically try to set your books in order of the time and setting like the dystopians at the end and the old pirate books at the beginning, play around with it. I personally wasn’t a huge fan of this but I know others that like that.


Well thanks for reading this post! I hope you’ve gotten some good Ideas for future re-organization. If you’ve tried organizing your shelves any of these ways, or maybe even another way. Comment below and tell me, I’m anxious to see what you’ll say. Until next time, READ ON!

  1. Okay, things got a little hectic last week so I’m just getting around to email but I was really interested in this posting. For me, I’m right in the middle of putting my nonfiction books in order by the Dewey Decimal system. I’m not getting really detailed, just the hundreds section they’d go in. For example, all my church books go in 200 (rather than 289.3) and my cook books go in 600 (rather than 641.5) Listing for the Dewey system can be found on the internet. My fiction I think I’ll put by author. But this changes from day to day. Hopefully by the time I get to the fiction section, I’ll have made a final decision.

    Great article, Jared. It’s fun to read how others organize.
