I don't understand. At all.

I spend a fair amount of time on Pinterest. Probably too much, but as a knitter and crocheter who prefers to eat vegan most of the time, Pinterest is a gold mine of great ideas and recipes. Also, Pinterest fills me with hope that, one day, I'll be able to completely remodel my home to my exact specifications with roughly seventy five dollars and things I find outside. It's a false hope, but that's fine. I visit Pinterest on the regular and I love it.

Lately, I've noticed a book shelving trend that I just don't understand. People are shelving their books spine in. For the life of me, I cannot figure out why. While I do find it aesthetically pleasing, it's too impractical for me. I like to see my book spines. Because that's where all the information is. How do you find the book you're looking for looking at the pages alone?

Maybe it comes from working at a book store for so long, but I prefer my books to be alphabetized by the author's last name. I used to sub-categorize, but that seemed a little obsessive so I broke myself of the habit. I'm even okay with an alpha-pretty. I guess. Personally, it doesn't work for me, but I can at least understand it. I suppose, as long as people are reading, it doesn't really matter how their books are organized.

As for me, it'll be alpha-perfect.
