colorful details

So the English major has a lot of books. And the books that aren't perpetually in my backpack need a home. I keep almost all of them in Idaho, but in Utah, I still have:
  1. books I need for classes that semester
  2. books (usually gifts) that are waiting to be read, or have already been read in "spare time" throughout the semester
  3. books part of my "permanent" collection
Today, when I was cleaning my room, I decided I needed a new organizing system. Before, they were organized from tallest to shortest. That was back when I was boring. Now I have them organized by color.

The red section is my favorite.

Dreaming in Cuban by Cristina Garcia - for my Latino Literature class
John Adams by David McCullough - for Student Council
Miracles by C.S. Lewis - from Santa
Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom - from Jamine
Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros - also for my Latino Literature class
I Like You by Sandol Stoddard Warburg - from Hilary

  7. I love your book shelf, so much so that it inspires dreams of whole libraries filled with color coordinated literature. sigh.

  8. My visiting teacher told me she was reading Tuesdays with Morrie, and I recognized the name because I read your post! I am becoming more educated by reading your blog.
