I own too many books.
I recently moved, and there’s nothing like moving to force you to face facts. There were six large Rubbermaid bins full of books in the storage unit attached to my old apartment. That’s in addition to the books stacked rightways, sideways, and any way they’d fit on my six bookshelves. I own more bookshelves than dining room chairs. I’m not sure this says anything good about my priorities. I had to cull.
If you're being forced by circumstances to reduce your book collection, I'm sorry. And here's a handy, book-by-book flow chart to help you out!
How do you decide which books to keep?
