    • Sabrina, I would never order our books by color, I wouldn’t know where to start, but for the kids it’s perfect. Not too many and manageable.

  1. It sure looks pretty, but with my own books? I don’t think so. Like Sabrina said, I need a different order and that order starts with the author and ends with book size (haha, no kidding).

    • I wish I was so orderly. My books are just ordered by -, well, by preference, I suppose. I sort of now where everything is from visual memory.

  2. That looks really nice, Rikki.

    One of my boys has a small bookcase that is full with books, Donald Ducks, school books, and it’s very hard to find anything back. At least I weeded out all the books for younger children last year, to make it more manageable. My other son has a shelf with a few books only as he’s not really a reader (until you give him a good book, then he’s hooked. But it’s not something you can make him happy with for a birthday).

    We get most of our books from the library now so the shelves don’t fill so fast.

    • Ha, Judith, you would think that our boys were readers, wouldn’t you. But they are not. They are only listeners. Sean is not able to read yet, which is ok, but Corin who CAN read, hates it.
      If anyone ever tells me that the love of reading is family made, I will kick them, because clearly it is not.

  3. I dogsat once for a friend and his fiancee, and their massive DVD collection was organized this way. It looks awesome, but I can’t do my own books or movies like this! haha it would drive me nuts. My clothes are a bit like this in my closet, though. 😛

    • Yes, movie collection is another good idea. Why did I never think of that? Makes sense, too.
      And clothes definitely!

    • Alex, amazingly, we also have quite a number of black books. I was surprised because somehow I don’t associate black with kids’ books, but, of course, it is only the spine in most cases.

  4. This looks so lovely! I guess it works best for kids books, because they tend to be more colorful and that could be an incentive to have them put the books back in place.
    Thanks for the idea, I’ll try this later with my daughter’s books – when she’s a bit older.

    As for our books, I don’t think I could manage, how would I ever find a book again like that? I tend to be the overly structured one: paperbacks in one place, hardcovers in an other, then by author, then by the order in which I read several books by the same author (yes, I know, I’m crazy)…

    • I have to admit that the system didn’t do much for my kids putting the books back, but that could be just us, :).
