Too Many Books…

I never thought I’d ever, ever say this but I think I may own too many books. I live in a small house and my bookcases take up a huge chunk of space in that house. I’ve just spent the last half an hour sorting through my bookcases in the spare room and hardly anything jumped out at me that I really want to read but what I did notice is that there are books I’ve had for years! I’ve carried them through two or three house moves and still I haven’t read them. I’m starting to feel like I should just get rid of a lot of them but I still feel a pull to keep them because I’ve spent money buying them over the years. How do you finally decide to let go and admit that life is too short for to force yourself to keep and read books you don’t really want to?
