This weekend I'm letting go of hundreds more books from our shelves.
I can't take the overload. The unused books gather dust that needs cleaning and tending.
The books we want to use have no room on the shelves.
What's the point of putting them in boxes to store away? Will they ever really be used?
This weekend I've culled adult fiction, adult nonfiction, memoirs (for adults). I have let go of some of my favorite parenting books that I read and used.
I've put the railroad and train books in boxes to go into a closet as I just can't let them go yet.
Next on the list of what to go through are the cookbooks, gardening books, and reference books. I may also confront my antique children's book collection which has done nothing but grace the shelves with their presence.
I want the books in our home to be accessible and cleanly stored. I want access to books we use.
(I also need to decide what to do with these books. I wonder if the used book shop that loves antique and vintage books and also book collections by topic would like to buy some of these.)
