I am taking paperback books out of the shelves in the family room.
Need to purge some again, did before moving here in 85 & couple times since, did not miss what I got rid of & felt glad that I did make purge decision.
After carting my beloved library of books around with me from coast to coast (and 22 moves), I made the decision about 6 years ago when I was forced to move out of my little rental house into a small apt. to finally get rid of most of my book collection.
I never made it through And Ladies of the Club either!
I've culled books many, many times over the years - do miss some of them still. DH 'helped' he hated the amount I read. Had a small bookcase jam-packed with my 'keepers' and coped with that. Just before DS2 went to Hong Kong he gave me a present of 2 huge bookcases! Oh the temptation! Even though I'm a dyed in the wool bookaholic, I will resist. I do re-read heaps. Funnily we were talking about Francis Parkinson Keyes a few days ago - could only remember 'Dinner at Antoine's', but have read many of them, but not for years. Didn't remember 'Honour Bright'. Would love to read them again. Hope you do find them on Kindle, but would suggest trying one at time, in case they no longer appeal. Love and hugs, Jenni
