Sounds like you have a plan that is working in your room! :) It was a tough decision moving some of the novels in ABC order, but when in doubt I went for my question of WWBND (What would Barnes and Noble do?). Ha! I still haven't decided if my novel genres will go into bins or not (eg- mystery or realistic fiction), but that's okay. It's a work in progress and selection, or lack of selection, will determine if I need to rearrange again.
And typing your books in Excel still works, but I will admit that it was fun scanning my books. It even makes the noise you hear when you use the self check-out at the grocery store. It's the little things in life that amuse me....
Best to you,
