THIS IS THIS WEEK'S TOPIC FOR DISCUSSION ----
We’re moving in a couple weeks (the first time since I was 9 years old), and I’ve been going through my library of 3000+ books, choosing the books that I could bear to part with and NOT have to pack to move. Which made me wonder…
When’s the last time you weeded out your library? Do you regularly keep it pared down to your reading essentials? Or does it blossom into something out of control the minute you turn your back, like a garden after a Spring rain?
Or do you simply not get rid of books? At all? (This would have described me for most of my life, by the way.)
And–when you DO weed out books from your collection (assuming that you do) …what do you do with them? Throw them away (gasp)? Donate them to a charity or used bookstore? SELL them to a used bookstore? Trade them on Paperback Book Swap or some other exchange program?
Oh dear, I'm afraid I can't remember the last time I did any weeding , in the book area I mean.
I am a terrible hoarder where books are concerned, I have some of my daughter's books from 20+ years ago. I SHOULD have a good clearout as the book shelves are taking over the house, but please don't expect that soon, lol!!!
