Where do you keep your books?  Neatly stacked in bookcases,  on tables, stacked on the floor, in boxes, or somewhere else??

Do you have a particular order you keep them in?  By author, by genre, by color?

 I have books in all of those places since I have more books than bookshelves. I keep a basket of books in the living room that I want to read in the next little while but I often get side tracked. I keep library books separate so I don't have to hunt for them. I try to keep the books on my bookshelves in alphabetical order by author.

We once had 3 full bookcases in our livingroom.  Series books were kept together but other than that no particular order.  However,  I still knew where each and every book was.  Since we had ran out of space to store our books we decided to downsize and got rid of one bookcase.  One still has books and the other now has picture frames, photo albums, and some crystal on display.  We gave away the books to friends and the rest went to a library at DH's job.  We primarily read on our Kindles so we just purchased kindle copies of our favorite books.  

I do have a stash of books in my bedroom that previously didn't fit in the bookcases but I've yet to move those to the livingroom.
