I would wager you have too many books. I certainly do. They overflow my shelves even though I stack them as tightly as I can. They congregate under my dresser and crowd my beside table. I am fortunate that my family allows me to take up copious amounts of space (“It’s research for my writing, really!”) with all the books I’ve read, hope to read, and plan to read again. But sometimes, you simply have to let some go. (Shock! Noooo!)
When my wonderful critique partner had to move across the country for a two-year assignment (and pay for every pound each direction), she asked my help in coming up with a way to determine which books made the cut, and which were to be left behind. What follows is a surefire way to cull your precious copies down to something more manageable.
Here’s hoping you make enough room on the shelves for the books you’ll be getting for Christmas. J
