I don’t know if you remember – but early this year in Taking a stab at by bookshelves, I wrote about my Read a book program. How I’m planning on reading my way through my books, to decrease the collection I keep.
I read in spurts, either not reading at all, or can’t seem to get my nose out of the books, kinda spurts 🙂
The year started off slow, but the last 6-7 weeks I’ve really gotten into my paperbacks. I have read a bunch of books and so far only one is a keeper 😉
That means that today, 18 books are going out of the house.
Well.. that is not strictly true actually, I know my mum reads some of these authors, so I’ve shot her an email to check which ones she wants, before I get rid of the rest. Hopefully in a day or two, some will be on their way to my mum in England and some will be on their way to the paper recycle bin 🙂
As soon as the weather is good enough to start my garden projects, I won’t get much reading done.. but for right now at least, I’m on a roll, so I’m hoping for one more pile of books this spring.
I have to admit, it’s hard to let them go, I like my books. But I have checked, and they can all be bought, as kindle e-books, should I want to read them again 😉
What about you, how do you handle your book collections?
