This will be the perfect challenge for me. With the economic situation and a long stretch of unemployment, our solution was to buy a tiny house and ride out the troubles. We moved in at the end of 2010, so the timing for this challenge is just right. After decades of book buying, I have boxes and boxes of books that can't possibly fit in my 'new' house. But I can't bear to part without reading them. Thankfully, my parents and 7 siblings are all readers, so they're finding good homes as I pass them on.
