Little Women author Louisa May Alcott said, “She is too fond of books, and it has addled her brain.” Well, if you are too fond of books, it may have addled your bookshelf, office, or living room. Reading is one of humanity’s most valuable pastimes. But if you can’t keep yourself from buying books, your collection could become kind of a mess. Let’s take a look at 12 ways to organize your growing library.
I know, I know…it’s a collection. It’s supposed to grow, right? Well, there are bound to be several books in your collection at home that you haven’t read in quite some time, couldn’t really get into, or — and this is a big one — the kids have outgrown. Before you can begin the organizing process, you’ll need to sort through your books and get rid of those you probably won’t pick up again. But think of it this way: you’re passing along something that someone else might find great value in. Donate them to your local Goodwill or book drive.
