I know I do these really sporadically, but that's because I work on Sundays or I have other things to do. But, this Sunday I have off and its Superbowl Sunday at that! I have no stakes in the superbowl because I don't care for either team too much, but I think if I had to choose, I'd rather the Patriots win. Sorry Giants fans :]
So Thursday afternoon I went through and did a purge of all sorts of things in my house, I threw away A LOT of things and it made me feel much better after some of the things that have been going on this week. A coworker pointed out that it is because I feel much more in control, and I think that's a very accurate statement. When I can't control some things, I go to the things that I can.
Anyway, point of the story was that I got to actually reorganize my shelves just a little bit, since I only have so much shelf space. I know the time is going to come at some point when I move where I need to go through my books and get rid of some, but I can't make myself do it yet. I guess until I move I'll just let it all pile up and then go through it all at one time. That seems like the best idea :] The ones I choose to get rid of I'll probably take my my local used bookstore to see if they will take any of them and the rest, depending on the shape their in, I'll either take to the library or donate to Goodwill.
Do you do book purges? Do you have a system that you use? Like how long its been since you read them, etc. What do you do with the ones you get rid of?
I leave you with a song that I have been in love with for the past week. Really good song and I recommend checking out the rest of the album!
