Order Out of Chaos

Before I get started with writing book reviews, I found it important to get everything organized and in its place. So last night I spent the better part of five hours pulling down all of the books from my shelves, writing down the names and authors, and sorting them back on the shelves in alphabetical order by the authors’ last names.  No more are there books piled sideways in front of other books, or on top of books in that space between the book and the top of the shelf!

       

That being said, the Book List page has been updated successfully to reflect the changes. However, I find it necessary to point out a few things that the List does not include:

  1. Cookbooks
  2. Comic books
  3. “Coffee table” books
  4. Graphic novels
  5. Books that are back home in The Bahamas
  6. Textbooks
  7. Magazines
  8. Video game guide books
  9. Appliance manuals
  10. Books that are not mine

That being said, the List totals 210 items, including ebooks. I have to say, it was kind of nice to sit there in the middle of all of those books… familiarizing myself with all of the authors and the books again made me feel a lot more connected to this little library that I have created. Perhaps that’s just my way of legitimizing all the purchases I’ve made over the years, but either way: everything now has its own place. NOW I can get down to reviewing!
