Sorted Books Project
We all know by now that your bookshelf speaks volumes about you … but what about when your bookshelf starts speaking to you? Not the ravings of a conspiracy theorist, but a new way of cracking the old nut of how exactly to organise your book collection.
The Sorted Book Project is the brainchild of multi-media artist Nina Katchadourian, who says she has been “grouping the books into clusters so that the titles can be read in sequence” since 1993. It’s been a slow-burner, but in recent months its been taken up by various bloggers and many of the results can now be seen on the photo sharing site Flickr.
And the 18-year-old blogger responsible for the Stuff I’ve Read blog quite sweetly “raids her mum’s library” to come up with the wonderful Somewhere A Cat Is Waiting/To Kill A Mockingbird/In A Dark House/Bad Kitty.
So try stacking your books this weekend and see what stories they have to tell.
