So the reason I’ve been sort of quiet the last two days is because I have been re-arranging my entire apartment to celebrate my new life plan!
And this new arrangement included FINALLY getting my bookcases all in one place. There’s technically a fireplace in that wall but it smokes whether the flue is open or closed and it lets in drafts whether open or closed so I decided ENOUGH! And I covered it up. With books!
I started out by stripping ALL the books off of all five cases, piling them on the floor and sorting them. First by “read” or “haven’t read”, then I sorted the unread pile by “never gonna read this” and “still wanna turn those pages”.
In the end I took 3 boxes and 6 bags of books to Goodwill.
I weeded out at LEAST 130 books and it felt pretty awesome.
The three book cases in picture 2 are the books I own that I have read. The books in the other two cases in picture 3 then are…. *moan of shame* MY TBR!!
LOOK I TOLD YOU IT WAS OUT OF CONTROL. *sob* But thankfully, with this new arrangement, I have to LOOK at all the books I haven’t read, so hopefully I’ll be motivated to reduce it.
