In sorts



Also, that article on indexing had a picture of a second-hand bookstore that warms the cockles of my OCD heart. Oh, except I sort my books by height and then publisher.



I'm so conventional, I shelve mine by genre, then alpha by author --- just like the library and the bookstore!

How easy is it to keep track of stuff by publisher?


I just like the look of keeping all my Vintages and Picadors and Penguins together - that's pretty easy, since these are probably the most distinctive publishers.


I know what you mean - I like seeing all my Folgers Shakespeares lined up so much that I refuse to buy the new editions of Folgers that don't look the same as the old ones damnit. But that's ok.
