BTT asks..
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?

All my unread books are in a pile ...all together! I keep the most recent ones together, then there is a pile full of old books that I have collected but not read over the years... and then there are others that I have started but not quite made any progress on! All in different neat piles.
The books I have finished go into desk drawers, so that I don't mix them all up!

What about you Ladies!?!

I put them onto shelves, but all of them are filled to the brim! Now I've to move the new stacks on the floor in our storage room, LOL.

Mae said...

You can fit your books into drawers?! I tend to keep newly acquired books close by too.

Dot said...

I thought that I was organised!! I just have a shelf for my TBR books! Happy BTT!

I wish mine were all together and so neat!

anthonynorth said...

That's an orderly way of doing it. Never quite cracked that.

Scatter Books

Julia said...

Me too, all together into pile. But inside 4 tote bags, split into two section each bags. :)

Oh well, you are very organized. All my Unread books are in one section, all mixed up :)

Shari said...

Wow, so organised!!

Jo said...

Very orgnised! My unread are in boxes sort of in preferences of when I think I might like to read them, but that is subject to my whims quite frequently

Schatzi said...

I cannot imagine being so organized! Perhaps because I've been living in too-small apartments for too long now ...

Unknown said...

A few weeks ago I finally separated my unread books from my read books and it was a little scary! And it's gotten scarier and scarier ever since because I can't stop buying books! Lol. But it's a good feeling to finish one and then get to put it back on the shelf where it belongs :-)

And thank you for stopping by my blog with your kind words. Your blog is quite nice, too! Very appealing! :-D

I have all of mine on shelves. For the most part they are all together because there are so many of them that I haven't read yet.

That's the first time I've heard of purposely organizing books in Desk Drawers.
My answer is up at The Burton Review

woah...really? they're all organized and neat? wow that's awesome. Mine are all over the bloody place.

Iliana said...

All of mine are on shelves. Shelves just filled with unread books. Oh dear, when will I get to all of them! :)

Beth F said...

I wish I could be so organized! My shelves are full and so I have books on every available horizontal surface!

Unknown said...

I'm exactly like you... I have books piled on my floor and in two bookshelves. I can't even use my desk because it's covered . Then there are the three boxes filled with new books.

I usually keep new books together unless they're in a series. Then I make sure all the books in the series are together. My ABRB(already been read books) are stacked pretty much together. Okay did any of that make sense..:-)

Thanks Veen for dropping by and posting my weekly Giveaway here!

Natalie W said...

So organized Veens! I have a bookshelf deveoted to finished books and a couple to books I haven't read yet. I tried to keep them in alpha order but gah--that got too hard to keep up with. :)
