Hey YouTube! It’s Zoë or readbyzoe and
today I’m going to organize my new bookshelves. My dad just built these
custom for me. They are so beautiful, but when I set up the shelves, I just
kind of threw all the books on there haphazardly. I want to organize them in
an aesthetically pleasing way. I know organizing these shelves is going to
take me a couple of hours, because I am very particular with the way I organize
things. So, without any further ado, let’s get started! *music* So, that is the end of my bookshelf
organization! I think it looks a lot better than it did to begin with. Not
only because you know it’s now in a more aesthetically pleasing arrangement, but
also now all of my series are together. So it’s also functional! Thank you all so
much for watching and I’ll talk to y’all soon in my next video! Bye! *music*

  78. Megan Bilbrey says:

    One question. Have you read all five of the maze runner books? They're sooooo good and I was just wondering if you had because I just watched a video of your from like 2014 and you said you only read the first one.

  79. karenwood24 says:

    Hey, Zoe, I love watching your videos! Whenever I see a new video I will stop whatever I'm doing and watch. You are the best! And I was wondering, since I first started watching your videos in 2015 I noticed how big of a Jane Austen you are and I was wondering if you could do a video of your Jane Austen collection?

  80. Missa says:

    You're so freaking adorable! I love your videos!! Your bookshelf is absolutely beautiful!!

  81. Hannah Hulse says:

Again help just listen to the book and you will see why I want a book copy. thanks. **********************************

  83. Kourtney Heintz says:

    Love the new arrangement! How do you deal with signed vs. unsigned in a series? I like to keep the signed ones in a glass cabinet for extra protection, but then I hate that they aren't with their brothers and sisters in the series.

  93. Evie Francis says:

    Have you read maze runner or the 5th wave or divergent? If not you should totally red them!, they are my fave genre but I donโ€™t know any other books like them. Will anyone help? Keep it in mind that Iโ€™m 11 but Iโ€™m extremely good at reading.
