The Rainbow Bookcase

Things I could have done tonight:

– Cook an actual meal instead of eating sliced apples with cheese
– Fold all of my laundry instead of letting it languish in the dryer
– Watch one of the Netflix movies gathering dust on my TV stand
– Curl up with one of the 3 books I am currently reading
– Wash all of the dishes that are becoming unsanitary in my sink
– Train my schnauzer not to bark at herself in the mirror


But here’s what I actually did…


That’s right. I organized a bunch of books in chromological order.

And then the whole thing again because I am just so pleased with myself right now:


I did learn something from this. You really can’t judge a book by its cover because some of the best books had crappy spines that didn’t fit into my rainbow scheme.ย  Truly, I felt like a traitor when the Jane Austen books were relegated to the boring not organized book shelf.ย  Next time, ladies. Perhaps I’ll do a chronological arrangement of books in order of publishing date.

  1. OCD is no joke! I have to tap walls before entering a room, wash my hands within ten minutes after and everything has to be in it’s place! So i can totally relate to what you have described here! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Don’t hate it though, it makes things easy to find! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. It’s a beautiful bookcase! Three cheers!
