Commingled books, the Dewey way

In an online group, someone posted a link to an essay by Alexander Chee, which discusses combining — or not combining — bookshelves as part of living as a family. I used the Dewey Decimal subject classification system to combine and organize our books. As a result, many of the issues about commingling books — of one partner’s books isolated in a “cell” or books given greater or lesser prominence — are not really an issue when their order is determined by a numerical system.
