bringing the rainbow inside, part two

I've seen others do it, I watched Siobhan do it and post about it, and now I've finally had the time to do it myself. And I adore it. Thank goodness I have so many vintage kids' books - otherwise some sections (yellow, for instance) would have been sparse.

YES!!! It looks beautiful!
Bookshelf rainbows will take over the world!

It is lovely, indeed. I've gone from thinking it's ridiculous, to seeing the logic in it. But how would I shelve my Raj Quartet, in which the cover design is unified by having the same design in 4 different colours for the 4 books of the quartet? Would I have to break them up!? And then there is "Staying On", a fifth book which is a coda to the quartet, but since I bought that one as a library discard; the colour, design and format have nothing to do with the other 4 books in the series. Yet I must shelve them together!

Maybe the solution is to keep a hidden shelf (in a closet? a cupboard?) for books like these which have to be grouped on other criteria than colour.
