If you've shopped 'til you dropped at one of the recent massive bookfairs in Manila, we're guessing you've got a glut of books lying about your house. But don't leave them on the floor (or on top of your bed). Why not spend a long weekend organizing them? Here are some IG #bookshelfporn (yes, there is a hashtag!) ideas for you:

Organized by color

One of the classic organizing tricks is to group books with spines of the same color together. (This works best though, if you have read most of the books already and you're not looking for a specific title!)

All-white

If you are truly OC (or just minimalist), make an all-white or all-neutral bookshelf by wrapping each tome in white paper. 

Identical spines

Do you have collector's editions with hard-bound, embossed (or gold!) spines? Then use the books as part of your decor. 

Floating

Leave it to the Italians to make loads of books look good on floating (cantilevered) shelves! So stylish.

Floor-to-ceiling

Welcome to our dream home library: floor-to-ceiling shelves of precious books, randomly arranged but impressive in its sheer number (you need a ladder to access these). And don't you just love how Nigella Lawson looks so glamorous just reading in her library?
