It looks bad.

it looks literally autistic and makes your bookshelf look like that of an attention whoring millenial who thinks harry potter is the pinnacle of literature

One normally remembers their books because of their subjects or authors, not what the graphics designer coloured them

books become hard to find
if I pull Hackett's Plato out and then I need a companionbook or another translation like Loeb, I can't just reach next to Hackett and grab it, I have to move and search the green section for my Loeb and then a third color section for the companionbook
it's retarded

>muh colors
Shut up, woman. I remember when my mother spent an extra $6k on a car because it was "the right color" and then asked me for money a year later.

Author’s work should be grouped together

Women should be grouped together and then locked in wherever that is

She's so beautiful bros... I'm thinking there might be some benefits to racemixing after all

"You're breaking up with me because of something you read on the fucking internet? On 4chan?" There was an undertone of explosive anger in her voice, just barely held back by sheer disbelief. I explained to her that I hadn't come to the conclusion lightly. She knew I have difficulties with race-mixing. We'd talked about it many times. "I thought you were joking. I thought you said it was 'ironic'?" She emphasized the word as if to mock me. I explained that just because something is ironic, doesn't mean it isn't true. "So you're, what, you're a white supremacist, now? I thought you said that was 'Reddit'? You read some incel bullshit on the internet, and suddenly you don't find me attractive?" I confirmed that white nationalism was, in fact, fairly Reddit, but stated that mild ethnonationalism had become geopolitically necessary even if it meant associating with Redditors. I also denied finding her unattractive. "So if you still like me, why are you breaking up with me?" Of course I still like her, I said. She's very attractive, I said. "Then why are you doing this?" I explained to her that her racial ambiguity was attractive to a part of me that I had become resolved to slough off, a second skin forced upon me by my upbringing in a deracinated multicultural megalopolis. I explained that I found her attractive in the way that my brain found cotton candy delicious, despite the fact that it's fibreglass installation laced with Jewish corn syrup. I told her that when I kiss her now, I feel like I'm kissing a changeling, something sent to deceive me. Something artificially sweet, with an aftertaste of plastic BPAs, or overheated teflon. "Do you know how out of your league I am? I'm taller than you for fuck's sake. I literally can't believe this is happening right now. I can't believe I thought I should settle." I agreed that she was out of my league, but told her that I had been reading Hamsun's "Growth of the Soil," and that I wouldn't mind a harelip wife, provided we could start a farm together, far away from 5G radiation towers. I told her we could still be friends, and asked if she wanted to read Hamsun with me. After a few seconds she closed her Macbook and she left.

Because you can't find shit. You organize by DDC; by the publisher, if the aesthetic is consistent; by subject matter; and/or by separating leather, hardbacks, and paperbacks.

If color is the most salient category for organizing your books, you are barely above animal consciousness.

>>19461493
its for women

I'd never find what I was looking for. Finding a reference or reminder of the wording used.
How could anyone who opens books, put them on the shelf in this way?

Oh and, good morning...

>>19461493
>Everyone is doing it.
So? People can be retarded. It's specially stupid when you want to locate a book.
>>
>>19461493
I just listen to audiobooks

we're waiting for the counterarguments you faggot

It speaks more to the aesthetics of books rather than any rational way to order books. Author, genre, those are rational ways. Colour is not.
>>
>>19461493
It's gay

>>19461493
I have my underwear and shirts arranged by color on the shelf. as a digitalchad i don't own enough paper books to bother. since every agent has blue hair now i've decided to pirate all my books until sjw fuck off and die. i have stolen approximately 6 gorillion dollars doing so. i am a walking holocaust.
>>
>>19461493
I think books should be ordered by the contents.
>>
>>19461493
I don't want to have Hegel next to Tolstoy just because they have the same color
And then have another Hegel book on a completely different shelf

This only works if you read YA exclusively, congratulations then
>>
>do you have ______ book?
>let me just check my shelf. what are the CMYK values of its dust jacket?

if this is not an accurate transcript of conversations youre REGULARLY having with friends and family, you unironically do not belong in the /lit subchan.

GET OUT.
