You’ve already tried alphabetical. And by genre. And by color. But you’re still having trouble finding that amazing novel you read last year. You know… the one about the guy and the girl and maybe there was a grandma and maybe the cover was blue?

Here’s a new way to arrange your bookshelf that we bet you haven’t considered: books you’ve read on one side and books you haven’t read on the other.

Just separate out your collection (a fun walk down memory lane). Then stack those tomes back up neatly and take pleasure in easily locating old books you’ve loved and deciding on new ones to read next.

Want to take it a step further? Organize the “read” section by reading date. Trust us: It’s fun to remember that you started Bossypants immediately after Crime and Punishment.
