Usually instead of spring cleaning, I blast my music and rearrange my bookshelves. Before I had it by genre, now it's ordered by spine color. Overall, it looks fantastic. The bad side, a little harder to find a book, but not by much. My bookshelves are in three different parts because I don't have a full bookshelf. When I moved into my current town home, my uncle built my little brother, sister, and I, a desk and two shelves to go on top. The shelves weren't attached or anything so they just sat on top. Eventually, my book collection had grown so much that they gave their little shelves to me. Two of them are like nightstands which I keep my older sister's old stereo on and my DVD's on and the other is on my desk.
Here's an overview of the shelf on my desk. Now you know when I said it's a shelf instead of a bookcase.

Can you see the frog? My little sister went a little crazy with color coding all my belongings and shoving them in between my books. So if there's something random wedged in the cracks, it was her.

|Red Continued and Pinks|
I love my little pirate duck.
If you have a full bookshelf, you should definitely try this because it will look even better than mine because you can make a whole rainbow. Mine are spread about the room so it doesn't look as nice. That's okay, I still love them.
What do you think of rainbow bookshelves? How should I arrange them next year?
