Rainbow Books

My books were organized by topic and then alpha by author but I decided to change these two bookcases so that they were arranged by color. I like the way it looks but I can't find anything anymore!


Here's a zoom-burst view of my rainbow books: www.flickr.com/photos/bluemarla/2099105201/

    a little O.C.D. but still brilliant!

    Awesome! I have my non-fiction books sorted by color! People think I'm crazy, and now I know I'm not the only one!!!

    very creative--looks great - I 'm thinking about trying this with my books but afraid I won't be able to find any of them when I look for them.

    Thanks so much everyone for the continuing love for this photo, which has been my most popular on flickr since I posted it 5 years ago! My books on these shelves are still this way today, with a couple of titles changed out when the colors faded.

    It's true...you can tell a lot about a person just by looking at their bookshelf. I would love to read your Book Review of some of these titles.

    Its beautiful, really, truly beautiful, but you'd need an index to find anything.
    Still, I have a number of entropic shelves, not particularly organized, this would be something really fun to do with them!
  • llaurin 3y

    I did the same thing, and you are right, I can't find anything anymore either!!!!! But I like the way it looks, so it's worth it.

    I like you idea of rainbow books, it looks nice and it feels nice. As someone said, looking for books may bring back books you had forgotten about. Nice picture.

    Marla: You have one of the best pix on Flickr. Here's my own arrangement of editions of books which I wrote. I'm still missing two dozen foreign editions, but a book arrangement is a book arrangement.
