How do you organize your bookshelf?

I’m in love with my new bookshelf and have already tried two looks on it.

1. According to size and boredom. 

The books in the lowest shelf are huge hardbacks that won’t fit well in the middle. After arranging the bottom two shelves, I was just too tired to try anything else and shoved them right in, proceeding happily to take a picture and just be generally delighted in the spontaneous appearance of a bookshelf in my living room.

2. According to size and colour.

It took me almost a month to get around to colour-coordinating the bookshelf. As it turns out there are just far too many whites and blacks in my collection; not to mention, some books have spines so battered, it’s impossible to guess what colour they are. Still, I’m happy with the result. (I borrowed the basic idea from here.)

Do you have any other ideas?
How do you organize your shelf: according to author, publication, genre?
