In my short-lived forays into the world of home organization, I’ve found various suggestions for sorting and organizing bookshelves. You can arrange your books by genre or by topic or by color. You can intermix your books with art or photos or trinkets. You can set some books upright and stack others for a casual look, or you could arrange the books by height for a neat and tidy design.
Last week’s Booking Through Thursday challenge adds one more book sorting option: by title.
Not alphabetically by individual title, but rather by clustering the books so that the titles create their own message.
I thought this sounded like great fun, so I created three . . . I think I could have spent hours making messages, but I needed to get on to my other-duties-as-assigned. Here’s what I came up with.
Book Title Story #1
Sounds like a Western movie . . . starring a nun’s dog . . . that is armed and dangerous . . .
Book Title Story #2
Sounds like a bizarre, melancholic indie flick . . .
Book Title Story #3
Sounds like the start of a poem . . .
I especially like CeeCee’s BTT entry—it tells the story of redemption in all of its glorious simplicity—as well as kiss a cloud’s BTT entry, which tell mini suspense tales.
What stories do your book titles tell? Wouldn’t it be interesting to develop one of these into a book?! How creative that would be.
