  • When's the last time you weeded out your library? Do you regularly keep it pared down to your reading essentials? Or does it blossom into something out of control the minute you turn your back, like a garden after a Spring rain?
    Or do you simply not get rid of books? At all?
    And when you DO weed out books from your collection (assuming that you do) ... what do you do with them? Throw them away (gasp)? Donate them to a charity or used bookstore? SELL them to a used bookstore? Trade them on Paperback Book Swap or some other exchange program?

Oh Dear. I have Never "weeded" my books. And you would think that by this time... after 30 or so years of buying books... I would be completely overrun with books.

I also keep my magazines. And newsletters. I do feel a little bit insane for keeping these. But I don't know how to get rid of them. So I have to keep them, right?! :)

If I could part with my books, I would attempt to sell them to a used bookstore. Or I would donate them to the library. But there's no way I'd do this any time soon!

Currently Reading:
A Trail Through Leaves: The Journal as a Path to Place by Hannah Hinchman

It's a book about how Hinchman does her nature journal with tips and ideas for keeping your own. it's one of my favorite books to re-read!
