I have a ton of books. And I have moved many of them several times. The hubs and I are moving again this summer and I have accumulated quite a few books since we moved almost 2 years. I am starting to wonder how many of them I really want to move again. For example, I own quite a few Anne Rice books (10+) and I have moved them at least 8 times and across different states. When I bought them I was sure that I would reread them because I love Anne Rice's writing...but I haven't. There are quite a few books I own because I JUST HAD to have them on my shelf. Now I am starting to rethink this. A lot of the books I would want to get rid of are on the 'looking for' board at Half Price Books.
I also have four bookshelves in my dining room. Two are lovely huge oak bookshelves while two of them are smaller and less nice looking but still match each other. I would kind of like to use the smaller shelves for other things when we move and be able to fit all my books on the two nicer pieces.
Soooo, my question to all you wonderful people, do you hold on to your books for dear life or have you purged your shelves ever now and again? If you have purged your shelves, did you feel guilty about it or was it worth it?
