About My Library
I used to try to hold onto every book that came my way since I was a kid, but that has changed. Now, I am trying to keep only books that really mean something to me, that I know I will reread, or that I want to have to share with kids. I've been sending lots and lots of books off to new homes and trying to find nice, hardback editions of the books I want to keep. I'm still failing miserably at diminishing the number of unread books I own, but I am getting much better at making realistic decisions about books I'm obviously NEVER going to get around to.
