Most of my craft books are in my sewing room, computer books are next to the computer, and my non-fiction collection is in the TV room and the living room, arranged very roughly by subject, but with a strong bias governed by size, so as to fit as much in as possible!
I organize sort of by genre/unread/read. I currently have way more unread than I ever had before...
"I currently have way more unread than I ever had before..".
That seems to be an occupational hazard here in LT world. :-)
Every book, (except for the lost children that are tagged 'misshelved') have a room, row, shelf location tag. So I can search for all my Dorothy Sayers, as an example, and find out that they are on S12, S13, L33, L47, L52, L63, L66, and L83. This is a combination of paperbacks and hardcovers. Some are in the sunroom, some are in the library.
This works for me, because I hate the idea of having to move books around to accomodate a new one that has to go in the middle of somewhere, pushing two to the next shelf, two at the end of that shelf to the next shelf, etc. I do occasionally move things around, but not that often.
I have over 3000 books and don't know what I would do without location tags. Keeping them under control is pretty easy, actually.
