Organizing Your Books

Our girls haven't been reading our books lately, and I'm wondering if it's because the books are so disorganized. I had organized them when we first moved in, but somehow they have become quite random! :) I'm sure that never happens at your house, does it? LOL!

I started by getting rid of some books. Books that might interest our girls were placed in the "prime real estate" area - the two shelves at eye level. These consist of books on dating and teen fiction. Other fiction or books that motivate are located above and below these.  And other less interesting books (to them) are on the outskirts. 

I also moved the books to the edge of the shelves, to make them more inviting. These are "after" pictures - I forget to take "before" pictures! Now I just need to explain the categories to the girls. :)
