I recently purged my bookshelves. I got rid of every book I don’t plan to read again. I got rid of books I received as a gift but never intend to read. I got rid of books that I’m not sure how they appeared on my shelf.
I kept a few treasured art books. Some favorite green business and marketing books. My collection of books on creativity. A few books related to coping as a widow. Finally, I kept a few anthologies I always intended to read after from college but barely cracked since.
250 books out the door later, I realized all that was left on the shelf was me.
What do your bookshelves look like? Do you have books sitting there gathering dust that can have a new life in a new home?
