Feature & Follow Friday and Blogger Hop

It's Feature and Follow Friday again!! It is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee’s View and Alison Can Read.  

Question of the Week:   How do you organize your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading-device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads, Leafmarks or Booklikes.

Okay, because I'm a touch OCD, I go a little overboard on this, especially with physical copies of books at home.  I organize everything first according to genre on the shelf.  Then I organize those based on author name, and then further by title alphabetically.  If I remove something, it always has to go in the same spot when I put it back.  If I get something new, it has to be slotted into an "unread" section and then gets slotted in as described above.

Further than that, everything I get goes onto a spreadsheet with multiple tabs.  The tabs are: Out Now-To Be Acquired, Upcoming Books, To Be Reviewed, and Completed - 2015.  Once I find a book that looks interesting, I add it to Upcoming Books with a release date and small summary.  Once it's out, it gets moved to the Out Now tab.  Once I've gotten it, I move it to the To Be Reviewed tab.  Once read, I move it to the Completed - 2015 tab where I put it under one of two sections: Reviewed or Books Read but Not Reviewed.

On my To Be Reviewed tab, I also color coordinate based on whether the book is an ARC or not, and I have a blog tour and ARC release date schedule at the bottom so I can keep track of which books need to be read/reviewed by when.  Told you I was OCD.

I haven't categorized by Goodreads yet, but that's actually something I've been thinking about a lot lately and may start doing here shortly.  I know it will be a big task to go back and categorize all those books.

7. Follow via RSS

Then finally....
Follow on Bloglovin

The Book Blogger Hop was originally created by Jennifer from Crazy-For-Books.  It was retired on December 31, 2012, but then relaunched in February 2013 by Ramblings of a Coffee-Addicted Writer.

Question of the Week: If you see a book you like but see it is 400 or 500+ pages, will you still read it?

Absolutely!  Especially if it's a book by an author that I love who has a proven track record of giving me book swoons.  I will be all the happier that it's a long book because that means I'll be able to enjoy some awesomeness even longer.  LOL!

See my follow information above.  Lastly, I would love to feature another blog or a guest post on my blog.  Please email me, or fill out the form on my Be a Featured Blog page, from the blog's main menu.
