Bookshelf OCD

I don’t know about you, but I have a ton of books, both fiction and non-fiction. Plays, novels, cookbooks, history books, art books, classics, short stories, essays, poetry, sociology, gardening…you name it, I’ve got it! I love having so many books on so many subjects. It’s like having my own library, where there’s something for every mood, and many times I forget all about the things I have.

Here’s the thing: my bookshelves HAVE to be organized. When they’re not organized or there are books lying on their sides instead of standing up, it freaks me out. I hate it. I need to be able to find any book at any time without hesitation. I call it Bookshelf OCD. I also have the need to get rid of any books I’ve finished and don’t plan on reading ever again. If I forget to donate them, they irritate me to no end and it feels likeĀ the whole room is cluttered.

Do you feel the same way about books or anything else? Can you control it, or do you have a hard time concentrating if your books aren’t properly organized?
