The Bookshelf Report is an ongoing series where a Bushwick reader invites us into their home and shares a little bit about the books that occupy their shelves.
Today’s bookshelf comes from Bushwick volunteer and resident soon-to-be library expert Ilse Allison. Ilse has been a strong part of our Bushwick volunteer team since the get go. You’ve probably seen her at shows behind the merch table selling you stuff.
How do you organize your books?
They’ve made it to the shelf vaguely by theme, sometimes for subtle jokes that make me chuckle. I keep my library books together so I don’t forget to return them on time and devote a shelf to schoolwork. Cookbooks get their own shelf in the kitchen.
