If you are on a tighter budget, you may want to consider contemporary bookshelves, which are usually made from a combination of wood and metal. The great thing about most of these modern bookshelves is that they are completely customizable. You can determine exactly how tall or how wide you want your shelves to be. This is definitely a plus especially if you have books that are irregular in size.
Floating Bookshelves: This type of bookshelf has a single rack that is attached to a wall. It is suitable for magazines or other light weighted books. You can keep your comics and graphic novels on it to keep alive the memories of childhood tales.
When you decide on categories write them down on slips of paper and lay your papers down on your empty floor space. Having your categories written down will prevent you for getting confused and mixing up your stacks of books while you work. Donate or sell what you no longer want to keep. As you sort through your books and categorize look at what you have. If some of your books are just collecting dusts, and not a beloved favorite or heirloom it may be time to part with them. You may not plan on rereading them, or perhaps your children have simply outgrown them. Many books can be resold either in stores or online. If you don't want to spend the time shopping them, or they no longer have a strong retail value, donate them. Most thrift stores will accept books.
Even a relatively crammed bookshelf can be a distinctive showplace for your personality. Throw in a few knickknacks and photos to show your interests and other sides. Invited a girl over and you really want her to think you're romantic? Get a volume of poetry, perhaps the Brownings, and don't just place it in with the other books. Prominently displace it out front by reclining it against a few book spines.
Clear a large area on the floor in front of the shelving you want to get organized. Empty off the bookshelf you are working on. Try to keep your books piled in a smaller area since you will need your open floor space for the next the next step. Categorize your books. There are a number of methods for handling this. Some people choose to create a filing system for their home ordering their books by author, title, and subject. If an alphabetized system is what you are looking for choose this road. If you are looking for more general divisions try fiction and nonfiction, books you have read and books waiting to be read. If you are organizing more for aesthetic appeal you may want to order your books by color or height.
