Ooh, colors!

I don't know why I'm posting so many pictures lately. I still don't have a camera, I just bug my mom to take photos for me.

Mom was a party to my latest insanity, though. I saw a picture somewhere online that showed a set of bookshelves where each shelf held books of a different color. I went from "how cool" to "I could do that" in about fourteen nanoseconds, and the next thing I knew, Mom and I were surrounded by books piled everywhere. And here is the result--not as spectacular as the original picture I saw, but still pretty cool.


And yes, I will never be able to find the book I'm looking for. I can definitely see a complete rearrangement of my shelves coming up soon, but they needed it anyway. I can incorporate the new shelves.

Taste the rainbow, read the rainbow.

A rainbow of good taste. :)

And it's so pretty to look at :)

K.C. Shaw said...

I think so! I may keep it this way for a while.

Oh my god, that would KILL me! I'd never be able to find anything!

I'd play, but I give most of my books away once I'm done. Maybe I could colour-code my to read pile.

K.C. Shaw said...

Jenn--Yeah. Unfortunately, I already can't find anything. :)

Cate--I'd do that, but for some reason my to-read books are mostly black. Maybe they turn brighter colors after they're read.

I think I have seen that same picture. It was inspirational. I am lucky that mine are on the shelves at all, any semblance of order after that is purely coincidental.

I was going to swipe the original picture and post it too, but it was so much more awesome than my little attempt that I, um, didn't. :)
