We KonMari'd our books 3 or so years ago. I'll occasionally reach for something that isn't there and then just get it from the library instead or move on to one of many other books out there I want to read:
And we did another round of it last week and filled up two more boxes. It's entirely changed my relationship to books. I still read just as much. However, I don't go into used book stores without a mission anymore.
I'm more on @twbrandt side with books, but we're presently working on a purge of CDs (my wife was a Borders music Dept manager and then wrote album reviews for AMG; so we've got a few hundred)
Anyone looking for an obscure album (esp late 90s- early 00s), I may be able to hook you up. Or if you want a random album or 3, let me know.
@swearengen I did! I won't be going to the shows but jealous of anyone who is.
saw S-K a couple years back. very very good.
@Erich As did I. They still got it.
@swearengen Royal Oak? what a show.
@Erich Chicago, but it too was.
@Erich I rarely re-read books too, with a few notable exceptions, like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, which I re-read every few years. It's like visiting an old friend.
But I do like them on my shelves. I'll see books I've read and remember what I enjoyed about them. People will come over and look them over and that leads to great conversations.
