Tips on how to get your bookshelf organized
Put all your books in one area in front of the bookshelf
All your books need to be categorized; you can do this as per the author, topic or title or alternately you can use the alphabet system. For an aesthetic appeal you can go as per height or colour of the book.
There may be some books you are no longer interested in keeping; they can be resold or donated.
Now place the books in the bookshelf in order of their height; if the book is too tall to fit you can place it horizontally.
If you wish to keep your white bookshelf looking aesthetically appealing you can try painting the insides with a darker shade and to make the shelf more attractive you can place a minimal number of decorative items.
