In this week’s article, we will give you some simple home library organisation tips and tricks that will appeal to your aesthetic as well as emotional senses all at one go.

So before you pick on a strategy to organise your library in Pune, one must get down to the nitty gritty of the task.

So now on to the different methods of storing your books.

Go ABCD route

The first thing we learn in school is the ABCD i.e. the English alphabets. This strategy is commonly employed by many across the globe. It is an easy and efficient way to organize your books so you don’t need to waste time looking for it. But one must decide which way to organise; either auhor’s name or in terms of the book name. Putting books in alphabetical order based on the last letter of an author’s name in a title helps make a shelf look more oddly arranged. Now if you do use this method, you must have a good memory you can rely on. Imagine having placed books where the author’s name starts with a T or a P and is silent. Instant hara-kiri. This method of book organisation is very reliable and as simple as A for apple.

Title is important

When we say title, we do not mean British Royalty like “Sir”, “Madame” et al, in fact we show respect to the author’s title. Yes, many readers remember the book titles easier than their author’s name. Go do a quick survey and you won’t be disappointed. Approach your bookshelves as if they are a table you are arranging for a large gathering – you would be a bad host indeed if you purposely placed foes next to each other and ex-lovers right across the table from one another. Books are also paired like a good wine and a little bit of cheese.

Colour me silly

Sometimes a book/novel can be boring and story just redundant; but one buys the book because of the cover page. Colour in psychology terms plays a vital role when reading a book. In fact many a times, if a reader wants to read something soothing, she will pick a blue coloured novel, just to release the stress. This type of book organisation in Pune, appeals to the aesthetic side of your brain. It will look pleasing to the eye, even though the books are placed in a chaos. One will find a romantic novel beside a murder mystery, (hey wouldn’t that be an excellent movie). You can create your very own man made rainbow in the living room.
The other sub method in this type is to group them by weight or size, where one keeps the heavier books at the foot of the bookshelf and lighter and easily accessible books at arm’s length.

There are other several ways one can make a library look neat and welcoming. We would love to hear your ideas as well. Post your ideas in the comment section below and maybe you could win an award! (Yes, we do give out awards too)

Work smarter not harder. So with that mantra remember to “pack smart.” Make sure that when you pack, you pack in a very orderly manner so you find it easy to move stuff around. Some tips include packing books i.e. (study material, stationery et al) in smaller boxes; your heavy clothes (like jackets, blankets and bedspreads will go into another set of boxes; you could also double up fragile items wrap in clothes) to prevent chips.
