It seems that everyone has their own particular way to organize books - be it by color, subject, or wrapped in red leather a la David Hicks (how fabulous). But this is the second time recently that we've seen a library filled with kraft-covered books, and it just doesn't sit right with us. Sure, we get that it feels less cluttered and lets the focus of a room remain on the decor - but how in the world do you find a particular book in a hurry without tearing your hair out?
Then we remembered India Hicks' solution, from that same article in which she mentioned her father's library tendencies. She added little labels to the outside of all her kraft-ed books, making it quite a bit easier to find anything. It still feels a little... well, anal to us. But to each their own. We'll continue to organize ours by whatever we want closest at hand at any given moment, regardless of cover or title, or any real organizational style, actually.
