This week's topic~~~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?
If, 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?
I guess you could say I fall into the " weed my books regularly category". I cringe at too much disorganization, and try to contain my 600 books to (4) bookcases. (2) are 6 feet tall and (2) and 3 feet tall. I almost never keep a book once I've read it, I usually will swap it on Paperback Swap, or if it's a really common title, I most likely will donate it to the library on going book sale, if no one has the book on their PBS wish list.
I recently listed about 10 titles on PBS and donated about 30 titles. My problem is that I keep accumulating more books whether it be through arcs or new acquisitions brought to my attention by all of your amazing reviews :) So I am constantly, trying to decide which books I will probably never read, and then donate them to make room for books I'd want to read more......an endless cycle it seems.
BUDDY UPDATE: Buddy spent his 3rd night at the Vets yesterday as he keeps finding a way to take out his cath. They said they've never had a cat do this more than once. Since they are running out of options, they are giving him some steroids today as he is inflamed from even pulling it out when it was stitched in place with the cone collar on. So no more cath inserts for him, He appears to be peeing a little on his own, so we are waiting for another call this afternoon to see if he can come home or not :(
