Book Beginnnings, The Friday 56 and Feature and Follow (15 May)

Book Beginnings is a meme hosted every Friday by Rose City Reader where you share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires.  Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.
'89 Walls
My Book Beginning is from '89 Walls by Katie Pierson:
"Seth wanted to break up with Quinn. But for that to make sense, she'd at least have to know his name."
The Friday 56 is a meme hosted every Friday by Freda's Voice.
The Rules:
*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that's ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don't spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post below in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It's that simple.

My Friday 56 is also from '89 Walls:
"Remind me again why you're with me? Besides wanting to get in my pants?"

Increase Blog Followers
The Feature & Follow is hosted by TWO hosts, Parajunkee of Parajunkee’s View and Alison of Alison Can Read. Each host will have their own Feature Blog and this way it’ll allow us to show off more new blogs!

The featured blogs this week are Banosaur and Alexandra Florence Books.

bloglovinGFCThis week’s Question:
How do you organise your books? Either at home on your bookshelves or on your reading device, or on your bookish platform like Goodreads, Leafmarks or Booklikes.

In my bookcases, my books are organised alphabetically by author surname. I currently have two bookcases so they also have to be organised in a clockwise direction. If that makes sense - I have one bookcase on one wall and the other on another. 

I don't really have my books in any particular order on my Kindle app. I just have the most recent reads at the start. I didn't actually know if you could organise them but then I haven't had the app too long so I'm still learning new features. 

On Goodreads, I organise my books by the rating I gave them, until then they are just in one massive TBR folder.

  5. I never thought about organizing my goodreads by rating. I may have to consider it. Thank you for the tip.

  7. I haven't figured out a way to organize my ebooks on my Kindle which is totally frustrating to me! But my home bookshelves for print books are organized first by series, they're placed on shelves by themselves. My stand-alone books are separated out by genre and then I alphabetize them by author and then title :)

    1. I've thought about organising them by genre but surname just seems way easier for me.

  8. I also do mine by author, alphabetically, but I have them broken into genres as well. I have about 10 shelves and I also do it clockwise around the room. I have the same genre shelves on Goodreads and a TBR shelf for books I haven't purchased.

    My FF!

    1. I don't think I could ever break mine down into genre, so many books are between genres that I would probably get frustrated.

  9. The 56 made me say 'typical', but the beginning left me agape.
    Happy weekend!

  10. I've heard that you can organize your Kindle books into collections but I've never tried it myself. I'll have to give it a try. :-)

    1. I'm not sure if I will bother, I don't really like keeping hundreds of books on it. But then again I only have the app on my tablet.

  11. I had no clue you could even organize your Kindle until this Feature and Follow. Lol! I've always just deleted the books I read. (:

    Old follower! Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I was the same! I should totally learn how but then it's just as easy downloading them off the cloud again.
