Organizing the spines
What do your shelves look like? Do you organize your books like this–
One particular blogger & Russell fan (hi, Katie!) likes to look at the spines, although she does admit to a hitch:
It’s especially fun when a friend asks about a book: let me see where that is. Oh, yes, the cover is blue, but the spine might be red. Some series, like Laurie R. King’s excellent Mary Russell mysteries, are scattered all over the place.
I can only assume that Katie has a much better visual memory than I do.
