Shelfie: April 2, 2017: New Case, New Rules

Standard

Is there anything much more exciting than a brand new bookshelf (or a new to you bookshelf as the case may be)?  With more space, we were excited to reorganize and re-sort our hoard of books.  With this bookcase, we added a new shelf of poetry (on the top shelf) and a new home for anthologies (stacked on top).

Poll: Would you put books like Homer’s Odyssey and Gilgamesh in with novels or with poetry?  Epic poems like those have the plot and length of a novel but the cadence of short form poetry, and I constantly struggle to determine where they better fit.
