In alphabetical orderThe alphabetical order is of unstoppable logic. With such an organization, anyone is able to find a book even among countless books. The method is also very simple. The books are arranged alphabetically by author and then alphabetically by title if it is the same author. Who is it for ? For those who only have the practical spirit in mind.
By genreA method that works only if you are multi genre because if your library only includes science fiction novels, this storage is useless. Please note: some books may pose serious investment problems for you, such as historical thrillers or sentimental novels with vampires. Who is it for ? For those who don't like to eat the same thing every day.
Searching for a work is also part of the pleasure of having a library.
By typeFairly close to the genre, the organization by type (comics, novels, children's novels, essays, etc.) assumes that you are curious enough to be interested in different forms of publication. Who is it for ? For those who have an open mind and do not give a scale of value between books, whether it is a comic book or a classic novel.
In chronological orderThis last approach, although logical, requires a fairly thorough knowledge of the given period of each work. It is a question of arranging the books according to the historical period treated thus Germinal will it be placed after The cursed Kings but before The War of the worlds. Besides this assumes that all science fiction books are at the bottom of the pack. Who is it for ?For those who love numbers and history. And who like to complicate life. The following four methods focus on the visual aspect of your library. You will get an attractive and decorative result but it is not said that it is practical to organize.
By publishing houseIf you have several books from the same publishing house, you are likely to be able to group books of the same size and similar appearance. By collecting pocket books or La Pléiade books, we obtain a coherent graphic result and a fairly logical organization. Who is it for ?For those who want to highlight their attachment to certain publishing houses.
By heightWithout paying attention to the publishing houses, one can be satisfied to put together the books which have an identical height. Another solution: put away the different works to get uneven so your bookshelves will look like stairs or pyramids. Who is it for ? For those who love geometry.
By number of pagesAfter the height, the width can also act as a differentiating element. In the same idea, we can either gather what is close (the big books together) or create an alternation for a visual effect. Who is it for ? For those who love to compare.
No matter the number of books, the color library always has an effect!
