The Guardian on Flickr ADMIN June 8, 2011
We'll feature some of our favourite portfolios and pictures from the group on guardian.co.uk and maybe in other formats, e.g. our newspapers. By posting your pictures here you a) acknowledge that you have created the pictures or have permission to do so; and b) grant us a non-exclusive, worldwide, free licence to publish your pictures as described. Copyright resides with you and you may reuse your pictures however you wish. You will be credited and paid if we make other uses of your pictures.

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

Are you pedantic when it comes to arranging your books? Do you place them on your shelf in order of height, colour, or age, in the order you buy them, or do you have a more complicated system? Do you place novels side by side only if you think the characters in them would get along in real life? Whatever your reasons for your ordering scheme, we want to know. Upload photos of your bookshelf to this group, and tell us why you chose the books, what they mean to you, and the idiosyncrasies of your cataloging system.

Here's how you can get involved:
1. Photograph your bookshelf, ideally so the titles can be read
2. Add the photo to this group
3. Tell us who you are, and the story behind your books (although you are of course free to remain anonymous if you prefer)


If you have any problems, please email hannah.freeman@guardian.co.uk. Please tell us a bit about yourself and your picture in your email.

We'll feature some of our favourites on www.guardian.co.uk/books.

By posting your pictures in this group, or sending it to us in response to this request, you agree to let us use it on our site and potentially in the newspaper (though copyright remains with you at all times, and you will be credited).

This Flickr group was suggested by the books community via Tips, links and suggestions.
