Yes I Have That Book!…Does It Have A Blue Cover?
Clearly we love books. We’ve been living (quite literally) with books for 40 years now. Clearly you love books. There is no other reason why you’d be reading this! Since we have this in common, I thought I would share something that has been making me giggle this Sunday morning.
I love the Boston Globe Magazine and read it faithfully every Sunday. The tagline this week of “100 Ideas for Under $100 for Your Home” definitely caught my eye and my budget. Wallpaper only one wall in a room for a focal point using only 1 roll of paper…. Oooohhh! Good idea. Paint shelves of a bookcase in 4 different colors…. Looks fancy for small money, nice idea.
Here’s the one that made me laugh: Still organizing books by subject and author? Sure, that’s practical, but color is much prettier. Start by sorting books into color groups, then “use a color wheel” as you re-shelve “to help guide your color transitions”…
Yup, that’s what matters… making sure that your brown books don’t clash with your purple books because they aren’t appropriate “color wheel” choices. Can you imagine finding your books this way??? I am fascinated with the notion that there might be someone out there who has enough books on their shelves to color sort, but who hasn’t enough interest in the books to want to be able to find them…..EVER!
