I just spent half an hour rearranging my Craft books alphabetically by author, because I couldn’t find something that I needed to reference. Argh.
I kept the herbalism books and the cultural/mythological stuff separate, though, because with those it’s just easier to zero in on the subject and then look for what I need within it.
And I just realised that I have about twenty books piled next to my desk, because I’ve been using them as research for ESTC. I’ll have to try to fit them back onto the main shelves eventually. No wonder there was enough room for everything. I should have known it was all too easy.
