Gaining mastery over disorder on library shelves

I got a lot done at the Middletown library today, beginning with several stacks of books to be reshelved. Not every book could go on a shelf, however; there are more books than available shelf space.

After that, I consolidated biographies and audio books, closing up gaps in the shelf with items that had been on the ground.

I am gaining mastery over the audio books in particular; a couple weeks ago they were completely out of order, which is alphabetized-by-author.

Biographies are alphabetized by the last name of the subject and some non-fiction books (organized by Dewey numbering system for subject and then alphabetized by author) had gotten mixed in with the biographies. Removing those non-biographical books made room to shelve more biographies.
