On the Daily Star Book Club last week, we asked members how they organise and look after their book collections at home. Here is what we learned:
"I started collecting books from when I was 8 or 9. I make 'to-be-read' book hauls out of them and pick each current read from them randomly. I prefer to leave the 'read' ones scattered around the house!"
"I am putting my books in plastic wrap with a silica gel pack to keep the pages safe from humidity."
"I arrange my books according to genres and timeline, a skill I picked up from working at the library. I usually have two books lying on my bed, and one in my bag because I enjoy reading multiple books at the same time."
"For me it has to do with mood. I stack my books accordingly, so if I'm in the mood for a light read, I know which section of the shelf to head towards. That's also why you'll find the same author scattered across the shelf, some with the fiction, others with non-fiction!"
