Home Library Reshuffle


There is something deeply cathartic about rearranging your book collection. It is also a great way to make you aware of your own reading habits and how they’ve changed over the years.

“I think I’ve officially got enough books on World War One to put them together into their own separate category. Is that a good thing? I can’t decide if that’s a good thing.”

    Oh, it’s all lovely and organized! My goodness, you have a lot of lit theory books. We recently moved and I turned the “dining room” into our new library. The books are badly in need of some reorganization, that’s for sure.

      Those lit theory books are the result of five years of studying Comparative Literature! And I like trying out a different organising system every once in a while, it is actually quite fun to do.

    That looks so great! I’m curious, which books are in your “female awesome” category? Cause that sounds, you know, awesome :D

      The “Female Awesome” category includes biographies of notable women (mostly queens), feminist writings (Simone de Beauvoir, Germaine Greer, and so on), and a book called “Women Who Ruled: Queens, Goddesses, Amazons in Renaissance and Baroque Art.”
