I didn’t bring many books with me to the new apartment, only favorites and future reads, but I did find 2 amazing sets of bookends. The book ends are giving me the inspiration I need to refinish my bookshelf that is currently in the state of chipped purple paint. Although the bookshelf has a long way to go, for now the bookends do a great job of holding it all together and adding a personal touch.
The items I own that belonged to my grandparents are always my favorite. They make me feel connected and I love the thought of owning something that was passed down + these items always have the best character.
The practical approach to organizing your books would be by grouping like items together. I did not take this approach. Instead I grouped by color, no one said you had to follow the rules when organizing!
