I need bookshelves. Sigh. Can anyone recommend some good ones? Currently I know I have a whole bunch of books but they are semi-randomly boxed together and I can't actually find any of them.

So I was wondering: how do you shelve your books? Alphabetical, Dewey decimal, by size, genre, type... color?

I recently bought three large, self-assembled cherry bookshelves from Costco for my books. I organize mine by subject matter myself.

The husband actually built me a small old fashioned stuffy English library, I love it.

Word of warning, stay away from particle board, mdf, and whatnot ... the shelves tend to bend under the weight. Stick with solid wood or metal.

I arrange by paperback or hardback and then by genre.
