Clutter happens!Posted Sunday, February 1, 2009, at 8:05 AM
I am a avid reader and read a wide assortment of genres.
I was looking around the other day and noticed, I have too many books! They were stacked everywhere and in no certain order.
Shame, I used to be a librarian, no excuse.
So I started culling. Then I started remembering, what a great book. I can't get rid of that one.
That one was so funny. That one is out of print.
But I did cull, and I listed the extras on paperbackswap.com to get rid of some of the extras.
Now I had another problem, no shelf space.
I switched things around, still no space.
Off to Wal-mart! I bought a shelf, moved (squished) things around in my house, and viola, new shelf.
Ok, now I mailed off 10 books on paperbackswap, hurrah.. and got 10 credits.
So.... what does a book freak do? Look for books!
Oh man, there is that one I have been looking for, theres another!
And another.. soon in the mail, free books. The post man is cursing me, the mail box is stuffed with free stuff. It is like christmas. Whoo hoo..
On the web-site I found a Wish List by members, so I checked Goodwill. Wow, books people are wishing for! I have some. Oh there is that book I have been looking for!
Now I have stacks of books, books that are wish listed and some that might be wanted. I can get more credits, more books...
Oh man, I was culling right? I looked around, I have stacks of books.
They make medications for this right? Maybe I need some. Maybe I need to cull again.
I'll keep you posted, right now I have to go to Barnes and Noble, Charliane Harris has a new one out.
