How do you organize your shelves?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates.

Hey there

How does everyone organize their book collection? Alphabetically? Thematic? Regionally? Im pushing close to 500+ books, not including textbooks and massmarkets I have a few divisions. I keep all my antique books seperate, as well as the epic poems; homer, dante, milton etc. Philosophy and poli-sci are also seperate. With fiction I keep books by the same author together, and I try to divide it between contemporaty(10-15yrs) and classics (hemingway, fitzgerald, etc.) Ive also kind of divided them by region. I keep all my Russian's on one side, all the Japanese somewhere else.

Just wondering what everyone else does around here.
