Sorry if anyone is offended but, I like my paperbacks behind closed cabinet doors. I line my books up in the order of what to read next. Of course I do spend time arranging them because I've changed my mind. Since I live in a smaller condo, paperbacks are shared. Our condo library has a swap area. I have found such coveted books there that I'm happy to return the favor by putting my lastest titles down there when I finish. I admitt that I do go to check how fast they get snapped up. It makes me happy when they're gone in a few hours.

There's actually a third pile of grey hardbacks in that last photo, on the third shelf, on the left side.

Personally, I prefer the traditional way of keeping books: on a bookshelf, alphabetized by author, then publication order. And I like the texture provided by books of various sizes, mixed bindings, colors, etc. -- ordered chaos, so to speak.

I've got quite a collection; it's my second, also. I donated my first, years ago, to a small library that had lost a section in a fire. My taste in books was a near perfect match for the section they had lost.
