Using rows with a list, one row longer than the other

Using rows with a list, one row longer than the other

I am working on my tribute page, and it is almost finished. However, there is one problem I can’t seem to solve. I have a long list of books. Because I think it is too long to just display in one row I have added a second row next to it. This looks pretty good on a computer.

However, when I downsize the screen the right row gets longer than the other, because most of the longer names are in the right row and on smaller screens they use more than 1 line.

Is there any way I can solve this? Thanks in advance!

You could make the second list move underneath the first, so you just have the one. Maybe with float: or media queries.

Ok just messed a round with it a little. Your div’s seem all over the place needs tidying. You can add:

This will create one longer list when the screen gets smaller.
