“Being a reader doesn’t mean always reading, and it doesn’t mean only reading. A dear friend of mine often says that books make us gluttons for life, and while I don’t attribute my desire to do non-book things on this vacation to any specific thing I’ve read, I know in my bones that reading both makes me more curious about the world and gives me a greater desire to engage with the people around me.

Sometimes, I need to not read.” from Vacation Reading, or A Vacation From Reading by Rebecca Joines Schinsky (via bookriot)

I usually arrange my books by series but today it is organized by how many books I can fit into one shelf and it is somewhat color coordinated.

My organized chaos.
