Organising books by color of spine

When at uni I used to get laughed at for organising my CD collection by colour of the spine of the case. I am dyslexic, I have to count a,b,c,d,e,f,g to find a CD in my collection but if I know it is pink CD it makes it so easy to find. I had, however never thought of organising my books in this way, such a good idea!

I like the red ironing board turned book case :)

I've always wanted to have the nads to file my library by color. Someday I'm going to eat some special brownies and just do it.

i agree, this is such a good look, however i have found it only works if your books are all of a semi-standard size :(
