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 keep them all. It is a dilemma for sure. I have 6 huge book shelves.

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.
