I have done several major book purges here in the last 11 years but still the place is overwhelmed.
I just love them.
Kindle etc. will be my saviour. I can now let go anything I can store electronically instead...though I do miss my lovely classics and the feel of them.
Also I DO re-read books I really love or I keep them for reference Some I would have re-read many times.
Another purge is on the way....I have to have storage space and I want less clutter. WAY less clutter.
