More unpacking, more cleaning, and more organizing challenges: namely, the fact that I am a voracious reader who is currently bookcase-less. How did this happen? Right before I moved I sold my beloved Pottery Barn Graham Desk and Hutch. I loved this desk, but it won't match the décor scheme in my new apartment so I found it a good home with a coworker on the Upper West Side. I loved this bookcase for two reasons:
- It was gorgeous!
- It was the perfect amount of space for my books.
The latter point is the topic of today's post: How to Organize Your Book Collection. This desk forced me to donate and swap books constantly because I was completely obsessed with keeping the hutch shelves stocked with the perfect number of books. Once I went over the limit, I'd list a few books on Paperbackswap.com and ship them off to their new homes one-by-one.
Here is a step-by-step guide to organizing, donating, selling and swapping your books: How to Organize Your Book Collection in 5 Simple Steps.
As for my new book storage? I'm considering the West Elm "Parsons" collection in white. What do you think? Post your comments below.
