"How do you organize your books?"

Book are supposed to be organized? Don't tell me that. Wish I had time to do the entire meme. Will say I never look up a word. Have started several word journals for new words and never seem to remember where it is. Ah, that organization thing again.

Wall-to-wall books said...

I read "Heart shaped box" I thought it was pretty good. I own "When Katie Wakes" but haven't read it yet.I am glad to hear that you liked it!

Notebook, cool, I just have to keep it all in mind. That's why I sometimes forget character names but it's my way :)

Missy B. said...

Midlife Jobhunter: Most of my books are organized. There are some that are "strewn" about, as my husband likes to remind me. I am not that organized...really!

Wendy: Read When Katie will love it. I bought it because I love it so much.

Bloduedd: My memory isn't good anymore. I used to pride myself on it. I am always worried that I am in the early stages of Alzheimer's...

Trisha said...

I think you are the first one I've read that looks up words she doesn't know! That is awesome. I think I'm going to try to do that with my next book.

I've heard good things about So Long At The Fair but Heart Shaped Box is a new one to me.

BTW: Yes, I do listen to audio books on my IPod!!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Oh you are organized. Mine are grouped by genre - more or less!

(Diane) Bibliophile By the Sea said...

Organized???? what's that ??:)

Kathryn Magendie said...

Many of our answers are the same! :)

Trish @ Love, Laughter, Insanity said...

I sometimes wish I carried a notebook around with me, but there's usually only room for either the notebook OR a book. Guess which wins. :)

By the way, from one cat lover to another, yours are ADORABLE!

gautami tripathy said...

I can read several books at a time!

Tomato Girl--fetus in a jar--one of the strangest things I've ever read about.

Anna said...

Tomato Girl was great, but I agree with Lisa. That part was very, very disturbing.

I'm enjoying reading everyone's responses to this meme, and learning about everyone's habits. :-) I keep a reading journal to jot down my thoughts as I read too. Although sometimes I forget it. I only write in a book (in pencil) if it's a last resort. One of my friends highly recommends Connie May Fowler too. I really must give her a try!
