April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Book reorganization

So, this weekend my friends, Sarah and Steve, came over to help me get my books reorganized, and it was a complete success! I get a little overzealous in my organizing sometimes as I like to have all of my book alphabetized by author, and over the last couple of months, my shelves were getting rather disorganized and I was getting discouraged at not always knowing where a particular book is.

In the midst of the the "Great Book Migration" (as I was calling it), I was also working through a "Great Book Purge". There were several books on my shelves that I knew I wouldn't be reading again (or at all, in some cases), so away those went. I'll have to see if I can get an exact count on how many books left my shelves.

Now, to try to figure out what to read next. I was working my way through a pile of books that were stacked on the floor next to my bed, but those have been added into my regular books now, so I don't know where to start. Part of me is thinking about just selecting a bookshelf and reading through the books on that shelf that I haven't read yet, just to get an eclectic choice of books. We'll see. No matter how I go around it though, I'm grateful for having my books in order again!
