The Great Bookcase Crusade

I need to get rid of some books.

I KNOW THIS IS A THING THAT BOOKWORMS DON’T USUALLY SAY.

Fact of the matter is, I live in a smallish apartment.  I have limited bookshelf space and I need to prioritize to the best-of-the-best books.  Considering how many books I accumulated in 2017, I need to start weeding through the books I have in hardcopy and donating the ones I don’t think I’ll want to read again.

The qualifiers

  • Books rated a 4+ are kept.
  • Books rated a 3 or 3.5 are usually goners unless the are good reasons.
  • Books rated a 2.5 or below are gone.
  • Childhood favorites or books I want to keep in my collection for specific reasons may break all the rules and run rampant.

Pretty basic, right?

Not so much…

Since I have over 500 books as if of writing this, this project could take years.

WISH ME LUCK.
