When a lodgerlover left, I noticed the empty drawers full of space I previously didn’t know I had. My bras (top), underwear (middle) or socks (bottom) won’t be stuffed back into this newly discovered space.
The drawers are the perfect size for 8.5×11 paper… of which I have plenty. I have boxes and drawers of notebooks of all sizes. We begin with the paper and notebooks from the plastic file cabinet tucked sideways under my desk.
The migration to the wooden drawers will force me to shed some paper weight and rediscover the ideas I filed away with good intentions of revising/revisiting some day. The plan is that one day I will have a new book to add to one of my bookshelves… spine color To Be Determined.
This color coded organization of my books is in part inspired by David Weinberger’s book Everything is miscellaneous: the power of the new digital disorder. I work full-time in public libraries and have a history of working in three library systems and a bookstore before this current job. We read Weinberger’s book for an Indexing & Abstracting Library class. My copy is marked up with pen and kitty teeth and claw marks. We will revisit some of the margin notes in future posts… as an act of archiving the trail of influences.
Tumblr has a ton of BookPorn sites, many of which I follow. Which sites on any blogging format are your favorite eye-candy sites for books?
