Hello everyone. I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who visits this blog and shares it with friends and family. I will be blogging more about my writing journey this year, but I will still be shouting out about new books I discover and other author’s work.
I’ve been having some really fun-filled chats with the book loving community on Twitter, about colour-coded bookcases. Some people are horrified by the idea, as they sort their books in alphabetical order, or by the height of the spines. Others love to store them with similar shades of cover design. I enjoy the organised chaos of a colour coded bookcase, by book spine. This doesn’t mean I don’t read or respect the books, it just means seeing the covers makes me smile. I know which is which and often grab them to read, but I know this might make other people’s head spin. Those who are possibly more organised than me! My house is full of colourful art that I’ve painted and I love handmade crafts from artisans, so it’s definitely not for everyone, but I love it. When I walk into a room and see the book covers, they lift my mood, as I know each cover has such magic hidden inside. How do you store your books at home, or at work? I’d love to know.
Wishing you all an amazing weekend. I hope you find time to relax and enjoy some great new books. Happy reading!

I love the idea of color coordinating the books on the shelf, Lizzie. 🙂
Me too, Jan. The make me smile.
My bookcases verge on the chaotic, but I do know where everything is. There is a book case in very room but in the main one, housing hundreds of books (got distracted whilst counting so never finished) I have organised according to male or female authors … and that seems to work.
That sounds like a great idea, Lynn.
