On Monday, Kristen asked everyone to show their clutter (or lack thereof) in an effort to face the problem and begin finding a solution. Well, you all know how I like to organize books by color, but with a constant rotation of books being borrowed and new books being bought, the organizational system sometimes breaks down...
So not only do you see my book clutter, but you see my general clutter... I really need more space. I forgot to mention in the video that there are more books in the living room and the basement, as well as the ones loaned out, of course. And the ones on their way...Though I swear that's not as many as last month!
So. The plan is to go through and start weeding a bit, and carry on the color coordination, obviously. The problem is, I have a lot of books that I haven't read yet, so I don't want to get rid of them. But I do have books that I know I will never read, or have read and don't want, or don't even know how I ended up with them, and they need to go. I am going to pull said books out and box them up, and they will either go to you, or end up on Book Crossing, Goodreads Swap etc.
If I'm being honest, my shelves probably won't look all that much better at the end of the week because any books I pull will be replaced by books waiting for a home. But I hope to tidy it and cut down on the piles a bit, as well as the useless ephemera scattered everywhere. Though you may notice I color coordinate that as well. It may be useless, but at least it can match...
