What would Melvil Dewey have to say?

I've been having an ongoing discussion with NoShowMo and Duchess Jane about organizing books by color.

It started with this, which Jane and I agreed we did not like.

I'm also not a fan of this, although sweet fancy do I covet the apartment.

I found this arrangement strangely appealing.  I think it has to do with the soothing symmetry of books of similar size and binding grouped together.  Also, effing hipsters.

But then Mo hit on something that just turned the whole discussion inside out.

I quote:

Not organizing books by color.  Organizing them by SURPRISE!  Spines facing in.  What shall we read today? 

I have NO IDEA!

Yes.  Brilliant.  Love it.
