Your reading habits reveal a lot about who you are as a person, but I bet you didn't realize your bookshelf might reveal just as much. A bookcase can show your interests and attention to detail more than an entire bedroom. In specific ways, a bookshelf resembles a mirror.
Bookshelves not only organize books of all shapes and sizes, but they may also provide space for other items. Essential things such as photo frames, decorations, or souvenirs that you want to show off to visitors. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. What you put on them tells the world who you are.
When watching an interview on television, it's fascinating what books are in the camera view. Are they there by design to send a message? This is called: "shelf rigging." According to The Telegraph, shelf rigging is the practice of rearranging your shelves to display only your "finest" and most literary books rather than the sexual thriller you read on the beach in Florida. This type of behavior exposes a lot about a person, including that they don't even like books, let alone read them. It's a bookcase with little substance... possibly like its owner.
The answer is straightforward: copyright! So that's correct; this isn't some groundbreaking design technique. Although it's a touchy subject among book enthusiasts who don't like the idea of hiding the titles. Because to show them, the network would need to obtain copyright permission from each and every title.
Bookshelves are both universal and unique. They reflect much more than their owner's book-buying habits. Walk over and look at your bookshelf
The actual artist, ah. You could also be a writer who enjoys not having to wear pants when it isn't necessary. Or starts the organization process with good intentions, dog-ears the pages, and writes in the margins. You take out books to use as references, whether for your own writing or merely to get that one great quote, and then you don't have time to return them. It doesn't imply you don't enjoy reading. On the contrary, you care deeply about them. However, having a messy stack of books suggests they're better loved—the kind of obsessive love.
When sorted alphabetically by the author, a bookshelf's organization, or lack of, might indicate that expediency and discoverability take precedence. However, suppose the books are organized by color or trim size of the book spines. In that case, the owner clearly values appearance and presentation over rapidly finding the proper title. The shelf reflects how the reader views their own collection: frequent favorites displayed at eye level, grouped by genre/topic/theme and other characteristics.
Even shifts on your bookshelves and in your life appeal to you. You're probably a natural at hiking high mountains and enjoying roller coasters. Even if you're having a rough day, week, or year, you know things will get better. You're aware of it because it has occurred previously and will do it again in the future. Everyone's life is affected by stress. But, on the other hand, you have a better handle on it than most.
You have a unique view of the world, one of your best qualities. Why should books be stacked vertically when the spines may be read horizontally? Different and logical. It also adds some zing to your shelves. This mindset permeates everything you do. Accept that you were the odd child in school because it means you have a bright future ahead of you. The strange ones always come in first.
After all, isn't that how it's done in bookstores? You're incredibly organized and like to purchase books based on authors rather than genres. We're guessing you read a lot of books in the literary genre. You adore the language as much as you cherish the story. You feel weak after reading great literature.
You prefer the writing style over the plot, which reveals a lot about the people you spend your time with. Your buddies are folks with hidden strengths that take some additional effort to uncover. You take pleasure in listening to others and making them feel at ease. Your relationships with people, like your relationships with your favorite books, are personal.
A well-rounded individual has a vast library. Variety is the mark of an engaging reader, so mix classics with contemporary, highbrow with the mass market, fiction with nonfiction. It will ensure that you have something to talk about with practically everybody.
Shouldn't our bookshelves be the final refuge for our vices? A part of our home where we may genuinely express our tastes, no matter how dubious they may be?
Do you evaluate if you see a shelf with books stacked backward, meticulously curated, or showing no indications of ever having been read? Because that isn't the shelf of someone who enjoys reading; it is the shelf of someone who regards books as decorative items. And that is the only true crime you can commit on a bookcase.
