Morgan and I finished a little color and size organization project yesterday. We are slow-but-sure starting to furnish our living room and Mark moved a bookshelf out there for me to put our books back on it, out in the open instead of in boxes and cabinets. Originally I was going to organize it by topic - health, architecture, graphic design, scrapbooking, etc. but some of the subjects overlap. And it was boring. I had seen, several times, people organize their books by color and thought that might look nice. So I called Mark at work to get the okay (that's all I needed was to spend an hour sorting them by color and then Mark get home and tell me 'no way, that's lame!') and he agreed it sounded cool. Plus it will be pretty effortless to figure out where to return the book when we are done reading it. So away we went.
The white and red FARMAX book in the 'red' section is there so it is out of reach of little fingers. This first edition book I bought for a class in college was once out of print and worth much more than the $35 I spent to buy it in 1998.
