Popular topic you got here loonka *chuckle*

I think sometimes when you put up a question relevant to every members book routine, a quick (minimum thought) answer isn't always possible --and so you sometimes don't get any response at all.

I have very few books sitting horizontally; I don't have too many doubled up either. The order & layout for me (presently) is about preserving condition e.g. most red (or anything close to red) are turned jacket spine in; some have facing books (irrelevant, non collection books) in front of them too. I have big books with big books; small with small. I tend to arrange by title; and by date within those categories. Although, all the recent deluxe styles are together for some reason. With the shelving courtesy of Ikea, some elements of arrangement are driven by how bowed the shelves are becoming too... & so one could rabbit on...
