BOOK CLUB HIGHLIGHTS

Conversations from the Daily Star Book Club

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!"
