I love the smell of books. I love sitting in a comfy chair with a quilt and a glass of red wine and reading for a rainy afternoon. I love rereading books and those few I do reread I will probably save. Books are my friends.
What I don't love is the space they take up or the dust they create.
In looking around my house for ways to eliminate clutter and possibly make some money to help pay off debt faster my eyes fell on the bookshelves. I could easily make a good chunk to put on a credit card balance. One book at a time.
What has always kept me from actually selling is the feeling of giving something up that is important to me and to replace it made no sense since it would cost thousands compared to what I would actually get for them.
I have this goal of reading the classics. I don't want to purchase them but can easily borrow them from my brother or the library.
This is another project that comes out of my decluttering madness. I don't expect to get it done by the end of June but it could get started.
