greenbacks


My favorite nook in my currently color-coded book cubby is the green one. Heaven bless Penguin for sticking with sea green for so many years. And yes, I did take an entire class on Graham Greene. And no, I can't get those "Used Saves" stickers off for the life of me.

I love how that looks! I have been thinking about color-coding my books for a while now, but haven't quite dared to do it.

Was your Graham Green class by Dr. Miller? I took an entire class on Willa Cather and loved it.

Books are such a comforting sight.
Color-coding is a cute idea. You would think of that.

my favorite section in my bookcase is the red section and how it slowly sneaks into the orange realm without a notice.

I love how you find the beauty in the simplest things. It's very inspiring.

(And I like the "Used Saves" stickers, by the way. They add character.)

Ali - Yay I just added a button. I love both of your sites, you are one hip chick, funny too I might add.

There is something so organizationally soothing about sorthing things accoring to color. This looks relaxing and lovely to me.

Love this idea. We just moved and organized our book shelves and I may just have to reorganize. What a 'colorful' idea.
