I am so relieved to learn that people turn the spines around just for the photo shoots. I thought those people were crazy!

I know some people get up in arms about books being put on shelves by color, but I’m one of those people that can find them easier by color than any other method of locating them.
I used to organize songs in my songbook by the feel of their style and the color they represent to me. I was always the quickest at getting to my music, at least I think I was.
Anybody else like that out there?

HU-991413500 I can normally remember which book is which color, so when I grab a book, I can go by the visual before checking the name... but for me, I'm never in the mood for a "red book", I'm in the mood for a mystery, biography, history, etc book, so keeping all of a genre together makes sense to me, because then I can fully compare all of the books I have and get in a stronger mood for that kind of book. So if all of my books were organized by color, yes, I could still find every book fairly easily, but it wouldn't have the right atmosphere, if that makes sense.
