Step 1: Organize by genre Organize your books by genre. Separate fiction and non-fiction works, then subdivide each of these categories. Non-fiction, for example, could be further broken down into reference, travel, and self-help. Tip Consider purchasing home-library software. Step 2: Organize by library classification Organize your books according to library classifications. The Dewey Decimal System organizes your books numerically and the Library of Congress system groups similar topics. Step 3: Organize by function Organize by the book's function. Place your cookbooks near the kitchen, your reference books near your home office, and your fiction close to where you do your leisure reading. Step 4: Organize by color Organize your books according to the color on each book's spine. This does wonders for a room's visual appeal. Did You Know? After the Library of Congress was destroyed in the War of 1812, the library acquired Thomas Jefferson's personal library as a basis for rebuilding.
