Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it!
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!
I’m going to muse today about library organization. I just reorganized my entire library today, and it came to about 9 shelves worth of books. At first I was just organizing them by where they fit, but then I decided that would still make it hard to find specific books. I am against organizing them alphabetically by author’s last name (like most libraries) because I have 9 SHELVES worth of books and that would take FOREVER! (: So I’m grouping them by category. I have a small section for historical books, adult books, court case/mysteries, nonfiction, mythology, really old books (they have their own section by themselves because I’m afraid they’ll fall apart), foreign language books, kids’ books, poetry/other various collections, books for review, giveaways, classics, and the rest are YA or middle grade books. Oh, and I have a shelf for box sets as well (Chronicles of Narnia, A Series of Unfortunate Events, Percy Jackson and the Olympians). So my mini library is growing! I still have quite a lot of books to acquire to fill out my series’, but Christmas should help take care of that. Also, I’m thinking of getting a Kindle Paperwhite! It’s a big decision. I used to have a Nook, but I never used it. I don’t really like reading eBooks, but I don’t mind
it. And sometimes, like when reading books for review, it’s the only available format. And I think the Kindle Paperwhite is as close to a book as you can get, so I’m going to try that out. Hope I’m making the right decision!
So tell me how you organize your library (if you have one)! About how many books do you have? And what’s your position on e-Readers?
This week, for Musing Mondays, I’m switching it up a bit and asking one question of everyone…
Do you know of any local authors in your area, and –if so– have you met any of them?
I know of exactly one local author. She’s a girl who goes to my school, and she was in my English class last year. She just self-published her book! I am so proud of her. Someday I hope to do the same. Here’s a link to her book on Amazon: Steam World by Tori Rock.
