Books driving you bonkers? Try these tips!
Are you bibliophile (a lover or collector of books)? I am an avid reader. I am also sentimental - BUT I do NOT have a thousand hard copies of books in my home. Here’s what you can do if you want to reduce your book collection:
1st - sort them!
Then- ask yourself:
Will you read it again (if you did, could you get in on kindle or at the library?)
Do you LOVE it? Sometimes books make us feel sentimental and that’s worthwhile!
Is it a duplicate? Is it out of date?
Could I sell, gift, or donate it?
Could I take a picture of it if it’s just for memorabilia and store it elsewhere?
Lastly- thank you book for the knowledge - and say goodbye!
Where you can donate: to schools, daycare, prisons, veterans non profits, and more!
Where you can sell (ebay, half price books, other selling websites)
Gift them! It means so much to receive an inscribed copy of a book someone else loved!
If all else fails - Recycle them!
