the time has come

I’m clearing out the book collection 😦

I’ve come to realize that many of the books that I have been holding on to are books that I read once and enjoyed, but will probably never read again. I realize that I shouldn’t form such an attachment to some of these, when will I ever re-read that copy of To Kill a Mockingbird that I read when I was in ninth grade? I’m going to keep the ones I love best, and try to sell off the rest.

I’ve put some of the “bestsellers” up on Amazon, and sold three since last night. However, I’m looking into the used book buying programs offered by Powell’s and Abebooks. I’ve never tried them before, but I’ve heard of them. Whatever can’t be sold, I’ll donate to the public library. The books have been taking over for too long, and I’ve been relying on the library system more and more just to avoid buying books that I will only read once.
