Wow...that's a lot of books - should clear up some space for sure.

I'm proud of you.

But what a great way to help the world than to share books? I decided years ago to a good way to help others was to share great books; I keep very few now. Good for you--you are HELPING the TV-addicted-to-junk-world!!!!

As one who values her books above most tangible things, I understand how difficult it can be to purge your shelves. Take heart in the fact that you can still check out as many as 20 books at a time at your local library! :) Your fellow bibliophile, Briana

On the bright side, some books, you can track down again when you want to read them. Perhaps not always convenient, but I can sympathize with the space situation.

I don't know if this is a good idea or even helpful but with your favorite ones perhaps it is possible to trade out for an electronic version (less space, I don't know about money). If that's not helpful, forgive me and forget I mentioned it.

And it's true, like you said--well-loved books become part of the landscape of your mind, whether you own them or not. One thing I love about them.
