How are you doing today? I'm planning to sort through all my books this weekend and see what I can donate or pass on to someone else. Here's how I'm going to try to be ruthless and get rid of a lot: I'll pretend I'm moving. Books are terrible to move, since they're heavy. Most of them only get read once or twice and otherwise, they just sit on shelves and look pretty and inspiring and make us remember great stories and remind us of the beauty in the world ... wait. I got off track.
Okay, I'm pretty attached to my books, but I'll see if I can let go of some that I don't think I'll ever read or re-read. I'll imagine that I'm moving and I have to carry every box myself, up several flights of stairs, to a tiny apartment. I'll let you know how it turns out!
