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.
Want a closer look?
Well, here we have my blue period:
And then my time of rose-colored glasses:
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. Truly, I felt like a traitor when the Jane Austen books were relegated to the boring not organized book shelf. Next time, ladies. Perhaps I’ll do a chronological arrangement of books in order of publishing date.

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! 🙂
Don’t hate it though, it makes things easy to find! 😉
You’re right, of course. I know enough about OCD to not be glib about it. I suppose it’s more of a perfectionist bookcase.
It’s a beautiful bookcase! Three cheers!
