The by-color and alphabetically are very tempting, but I'd run into the problem of room. Most of my tpbs are stacked vertically to make room for the hardcovers/oversized pbs.

I need to redo my shelves though. Right now it's a loose 'by genre' configuration, grouped by author, and by size, sort of.

Depending on how much time and energy you want to spend, the other ideas here are great - or too involved.

If I wanted to do a quick update, I'd start by taking down the wall art which definitely dates the room.

Though I think it looks great on the table.
