You're right, Erin. I find I end up treating it like a puzzle -- picking a bunch of books I want to read, then trying them out and moving them around to see what works together. The shelves this time made it a bit of a challenge to do that. I'm sure it was intentional, since that's actually part of the fun.

Erin E (elizamc) It would seem that way Susan, it took a lot of work for me as well, but in all fairness it was interesting to see how many new and interesting books are out there. Fantasy is not always a genre I look to.
