The process of purging our book collection is a lot more difficult than I ever imagined.
We just have way too many books. For 38 years we have been collecting and hoarding our books. It is so difficult to part with these old friends, but we have committed to this process. . .
So with much trepidation we each went through our books and selected the first group we would be willing to part with. I had a ton of books, well, maybe only 24, on cooking, diet, health and exercise that it was fairly easy to pack away.
My hubby did his part and packed away a lot of old textbooks, management books and study guides. So this load of books was put in a box and shoved in a closet for a month.
Well, our month is up and we only pulled out a few books and yesterday I packed the rest in the first 2 boxes of books that are going to charity.
We still have a long way to go but at least we have started.
