For me the most important storage aspect of my magic library is accessibility. When I need a book I want to be able to get to it quickly and easily. I don't want to rummage through piles of books stacked vertically (someone once told me that when you see books stacked vertically you are looking a books that are seldom read...not sure if that's true but I see the point). And I like my books on higher shelves...I'm getting up there in years and try to avoid crawling around on the floor looking through books at floor level. I try to arrange them by broad categories...cards...coins...mentalism...etc. and then by author. I say "try" because some books don't fit the paradigm. And of course I keep multi-Volume sets together (as I am sure everyone does). I suppose the point is, I have an order that I like and it allows me to find books quickly...as long as I put them back when I'm done. And then there's lecture notes, magazines, and instructions that come with packaged effects...well, that's another story.

I like how you have chemical magic. I get a kick out of some of the things it asks of you to acquire.

I have recently downsized my library. At first I was reluctant because there were memories attached to every book but it became easier as worked my way through them. Where I once had five large bookcases I now have just one. So four out of five books had to go. It was hard but I feel much better for doing it. All the books went to local charity shop that specialises in books. The great thing is that all of my remaining books are the ones I really value and I feel 10 years younger.
