A Little Bookshelf Tour

One thing that I adore watching on Youtube is a bookshelf tour. For some strange reason I find them really really relaxing so I thought why not do one on here. Of course I’m not going to be able to show you in detail everything but i’ll try to take some arty shots that can give you a clue on how I organise my books.

At the current moment in time I have six bookcases/shelves and then there are some on the top of my wardrobe and holding up my lamp on my bedside table. Among this they are divided into my read books and my tbr books because … well … that’s a lot easier for me. My read books are displayed in alphabetical order from their authors surname whilst my tbr books are in rainbow order. Oh and all my hardbacks, no matter whether i’ve read them or not, are in a rainbow colour as well. I knew I wanted to do this before I started choosing the books I wanted to take with me to drama school and packing them all away! So let’s get going!

The first bookcase that we come to is my littlest with only three shelves. Can you believe only two years ago I only had those two bookcases.
