Today was a second go round for thinning out books during my 27 day challenge. When my first "27 fling boogie" of reading material proved to be surprisingly painless, I decided to "dig deeper" to see if I could let go of even more books. This turned out to be a successful venture.
Just like day 11, I discovered books that I had acquired, but had never read. I sat down on a little bench in my reading room and read the first page of several of these books. If they sounded like something I would like to read, I put them back on the shelf, if not, they were added to my give away pile.
I also decided to pass along some of my "favorites" that I had been holding on to. I am not one to reread books so there was really no point in keeping them.
*I keep a log of the books that I have read so that I don't make the mistake of re-buying them.
My bookshelf looks so much better now. In the future, I am going to think twice before bringing in new reading material. I have so many books that I have not read, that I will be busy for some time!
