Organizing the bookcase

This video about organizing a set of bookshelves made me laugh; granted, it was made by film makers as a film project, but who hasn’t re-arranged bookshelves in countless ways to try to fit as many items as possible? How many different ways do we try to organize our books: by colour, size, shape, subject, title, anarchy, chaos? In one of my classes, I ask students to describe and explain personal organization systems they have created: Perhaps adding a video component might make a good complement.
