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!
