I Love Organizing Books and Meeting Authors

Organizing Your Books

I love organizing my books. When I was little, my room wasn’t that neat, but all my children’s books were arranged on my big bookcase in alphabetical order by the author’s last name!

Right now I have some volumes in a storage facility, some on shelves, and others scattered around the bedroom, bathroom, and living room (and I’m not going to post photos of that mess!) I am giving some away to charity (if I haven’t read them in ten years I’m never going to read them!). But most importantly, I bought a Kindle a few months ago and have them on there. It can hold over 3,000 books! The only ones I really need to keep in book form are my beloved decorating and interior design coffee-table books!

I keep my Kindle books neatly organized in Collections.

What authors would you like to meet?

 I really thought about this. There are some “mysterious” authors I’d like to know more about, such as Tom Pynchon. Who is he? The only problem is that I haven’t read any of his books! J.K. Rowling comes to mind because I love the story of how she wrote much of the first Harry Potter book in a local coffee shop. I love to write in coffee shops and also in mall food courts BEFORE the mall opens!

I would really like to talk to some DEAD authors, too. Jane Austen and all of the Brontes! J. D. Salinger! Ernest Hemingway and Sylvia Plath! I wish there had been better medications for depression when Ernest and Sylvia were alive. So sad . . . and then there’s John Keats and the other tragic English romantics . . . gosh, the list is endless!

Thank you for reading The Literary Lioness!

I love books, writing, film, and television.
