Dewey Diddy Diddy Dum Diddy Dew

Last night my husband and I were watching the Stargate episode where Sam's new boyfriend is teasing her about quirkiness. He makes a comment that goes something like: "as long as you don't have alphabetized bookshelves...".

My husband looked at me and grinned his "you have weird quirkinesses" smile.

You see, I not only want my bookshelves alphabetized---I want them arranged according to the Dewey Decimal System. This has been a dream of mine ever since I began collecting books in my early childhood.

People keep telling us we need a bigger place because we have a lot of kids. They're all only half way right. Yes, a bigger place is needed...but not for the kids' sake. If we were to have one more bedroom than we have now, it would not be for kids---it would be for my dream library.

All arranged as Dewey would do it.


  1. Not a little OCD about book organization, are you?
    I saw where someone was using stacks of books as furniture but my kids would just spread them around and not leave them all stacked up neatly.

  2. I agree with this. I would love a library room with floor to ceiling shelves and those little ladders that roll along the wall.

    And I think the Dewey Decimal System is the only logical way to store books. I'm just too lazy to implement it at my house.

  3. I agree with you, once I get Emily moved upstairs and make her current room my den, I want to Dewey-ize the books.


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read each one of them and love to respond back to those who visit! Please consider signing up for EMAIL NOTICES so you'll have a reminder of our weekly HOMEMAKING PARTY---and more! Have a wonderful day!
