It's not hoarding if it's books.

Why are you getting rid of the books! I recently moved and my new place didn’t feel like home until I had my book shelves unpacked.

The only time I’ve purged books was after I deconverted and got rid of my religious stuff, or when I donate books my son has outgrown.

I even struggle with my ebooks. I love the convenience, but don’t feel like I really own them.

I use the method of waiting until my wife threatens to divorce me if I don't get rid of "some" of them and then buy bigger book shelves to make it look like I have less.


Keep the books you've read and have made a big impact on you. Never dump these. They are your soul. Dump the ones you always intend to read. They'll always be there and never read.

I only get rid of books when I run out of space on my shelves and only its books that I didn't like. I'd prefer to keep most all of my books but I've never had enough space for them all.

Posted by Julie808I'm currently reading "The Power Worshippers" by Katherine Stewart. Is anyone else reading this?

Posted by HannaYouI might be a bit late to the party, but for those who like Scandinavian crime thrillers (or any type of mystery/crime books), have you read Jo Nesbo's Harry Hole series?

Posted by HannaYouStephen Fry- Mythos I'm ashamed to say that I never knew much about Greek mythology until now.

Posted by HannaYouI've just finished this book and I cannot begin to describe the amount of respect and admiration I have for the author, Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

Posted by HagesHave any of you read this?

Posted by IamNobodyWell certainly took my my defense, it's 969 pages and I have other things going on as well. Anyhow, two down three more to go...

Posted by GaryWayneI do hope this group will not mind an author sharing with you a new fantasy series.
