Since I’ve been in editing mode this year—and under deadline—many things around the house have fallen into states of disarray. Some of the most noticeable cluttered spaces are my bookshelves. After turning in the first round of content edits on my second novel I took a few days to organize my wall of books.
But before I could tackle all those, I went to my other shelves and organized them so I could relocate some of the reference collection, among other things.
Not too shabby.
The Shannara books are out of the cabinet.
Some of my favorite authors—and writing reference books—are located on the side of my standing desk.
Many of my YA (and other) books are now located on the other side of my desk.
Besides organizing I’m donating a box of MG-YA books to a friend who’s a first year middle school English teacher.
But rather than totally streamlining, being the bibliophile that I am, I’ve already added fourteen new books to my collection so I now have some stacks in front of the stacks…
I tried, really I did.
What’s your (book) weakness?
P.S. For those who subscribe to my newsletter, I skipped September because I hope to have some exciting news to share early this month, so be on the lookout.
