booked out

August 8, 2008

I started thinning things out last night, tackled my book shelves first. I’m hoping to sell some of these tomes at Powells, but I imagine a fair number will go to Goodwill, like my torn up copies of Lord of the Rings trilogy. Sorry guys, they just didn’t make the cut for me. I’m finally parting with Sisterhood is Powerful, The Women’s Room and Lesbian Woman. I don’t know why I’ve held onto such titles all these years. Maybe it’s because reading them felt like a rite of passage. But I doubt I’ve cracked one of the covers since sometime back in the early 80’s. To think I even moved them across the country.

    i did the same with my books over the last couple of years. i’ve got all of my books from 2 bookcases to one large 4 shelf bookshelf (more or less). for some reason i kept 2 copies of my Norton Anthology from my English lit classes which I suppose is a little peculiar. so much goodness is such a condensed space i guess is why. i’ve been doing the same with clothes and all sorts of other things. i got rid of all of my cd cases and have them in books — and slowly making their way to electronic files. all of that feels good. have fun with it.
