Follow Friday (1)

Welcome to Sunrise Avenue!

Increase Blog Followers

This is my first ever Feature & Follow! I am totally excited! I want to find more book blogs to be following on my Feedly! 

I love Feedly more than Bloglovin' (am I the only one??), but feel free to follow anyway you would like, including Twitter (@sunrise_books) or Goodreads (Alyssa Zech).

This week's question:

What do you do with your books after you're done reading them?

Answer: Shelve them! Currently I have one tall shelf for fiction alphabetized by author's last name, and another for non-fiction divided by section (cookbook, family, womanhood, etc) and then by author. But now I have so many books that I can't fit them in where they belong! So they sorta just hang out, stacked where ever I put them. 

BUT! If anyone has some hints on how to organize Kindle books, I would great appreciate it!! I wish I could organize them somehow to make finding what I want to read so much easier! 

Have a great weekend!!


  1. My husband gave me a hard time with having so many books everywhere. So as a compromise I donated ones that weren't my absolute faves to the library when we moved. I still have a small hidden stack that I'm thinking of giving away soon on my blog. Most of what I buy now is for the Kindle :) Happy Friday! New bloglovin follower.

    1. My husband is always asking why I need a new book! How did I marry a non-reader?? :) Thanks for the follow! I will return!

  2. New follower!

    I shelve them, too :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by my humble abode! Maybe soon I will get a picture up of my shelves. I have seen some PACKED ones out there, and mine aren't there yet, but getting close :)

  3. Thanks for stopping by my FF!

    I need a new way to organize my Kindle books, too. I hate that they all just chill out in read order. I need to make "shelves," like I can in the iBooks application. I haven't found anything like that for the Kindle app, so I guess I'll have to suffer with the way they are now.

    1. I wonder if I can for Nook either?? Maybe I will start petitioning Amazon hardcore.... :)
      So glad you stopped by here, I was glad to stumble upon your place!!

  6. I love the sound of your organization system! I usually organize mine by favorites.

    I like feedly, I think I actually like it more than Bloglovin, but I've gotten used to Bloglovin lately. I followed you on feedly, though!

  7. Hmm I think I made it sound better than it really is! :)

  8. I am having a tough time falling in love with Bloglovin...its just so...plain. Thanks for stopping in!

    Great to alphabetize your books.

    Here is what I do.

    I keep the ones I like and then lend them out. My friends call it Elizabeth's Lending Library.

    If I don't like them, I take them to the library for their annual book sale or for our book club's book swap month.
