Monday, August 21 — Finally in my apartment, explaining why I organized my bookshelves like that and how I find my books!
Hey guys, I hope you all having an amazing Monday! I am so happy to finally be able to take a proper #shelfie,
so here is the result of 2 hours spent organizing my bookshelves!
Since I've got a lot of messages asking me why I organized my bookshelves like that, how I find my books etc, I decided to explain everything in this post, so take a cup of coffee, grab some snacks and let's go!
"Why do you decided to organize your bookshelves like that?" | Well, there is not only one specific reason that I decided to do that, the first one would be that I'm in a very small apartment for my studies and I don't really have that much of luminosity and I've found that putting my books this way adds more visual space, and reflects much more the light coming from the outside!
The second reason would be that I personally love having my books like that, it puts me in such a good mood, I find it extremely aesthetic pleasing and also very calming/cosy.
The third and last reason is that I personally have an issue on sometimes finishing books, I feel attracted to pretty book covers like "oh I really want to start reading this one, should I stop my current read?", so having my books this way is helping me a lot to concentrate on what I am currently reading whithout being interrupted by the beauty of books!
"How the hell do you find your books?" | Well, having my books backwards isn't a big deal actually! Each book has its proper place, each shelve has its own genre such as Classics, Non Fiction, Mystery etc. I also know where my books are by the color of the pages, like if it is a second hand book, if the books looks the exact same at a certain place then I know it is a book series, I also do a stack of my ultimate favorite books so I know where they are etc. So it is extremely easy for me to know precisely where a specific book is since it is very organized (by author, genre, tbr, favs..)
Well, I hope you found this post interesting and now understand why I decided to put my books backwards🙌🏻 I'll soon be posting a close-up picture of my coffee corner!
