New Column -- Letting Go of Books


I have a new column up at Romancing the Blog today. I'm going to be moving some time in the next few months and I have to face the thought of sorting through my books and getting rid of some significant fraction; I'm trying to psych myself up to it. I'm sure a lot of folks here have suffered similar trauma. [wry smile]

Getting rid of books? Surely you are jesting with an old man. But be careful, I could have a heart attack.

Charles -- LOL! Seriously! That's pretty much how I feel about it too. [shudder] I have some duplicates -- when you can't get all your books onto shelves, you tend to forget what you have sometimes, especially when I'm replacing something so I know I've read it before and used to own it -- and occasionally I buy a book that's just so awful I really do want to get rid of it. Most of the time, though, even if it was just okay I want to keep it because I never know whether I'll want to read it later.
