Shelving books ~ Where does it go?

Where does this book go?
Who can come up with the most creative response?
Is this book blue or green or red or orange?
Yes, this is what's wrong with shelving books by cover.

What a ridiculous idea! While I love a creative adventure now and then, book shelving should not be one of them. Shelve it by the author if it is fiction and the call number if it is non-fiction. I worked in a library once and saw how people can get so caought up on cover colors and miss the book on the shelf.

A person could shelve by color and by author/number. If I did this, I would put multi-colors randomly on the shelf.
