Colouring your Books

From Rookie Magazine: Annie’s Room:

I’m obsessed with rainbows, so my books are organized by color. It really brightens up the room! I just have to think for a second about whether the spine is blue or orange when looking for a particular title.

This is such a pretty idea. I think it would make me crazy cause I’d never remember the colour of the book’s spine. I have enough to remember the title of the book. I sort mine by subject and hope I don’t make that confusing enough.

But, this is such a charming idea. Maybe I could do it with one shelf. Too bad I stopped keeping all my fiction books. Those would have been great for this plan. Maybe it’s a great idea for people running secondhand bookstores. What do you think?
