This is a hard question, I don’t like getting rid of books but, when we moved into our house a few years ago I culled several hundred books from my collection, the majority of the were mass market paperbacks, and I was ruthless, I pretty much got rid of all my fiction except for a books by a few specific authors, such as Terry Pratchett.
Some of them I miss, but I know I can always get them again, if necessary, but I still have around 800 physical books and my other half always wonders why I need so many – he has never understood collecting, he has a lot of CDs but regularly goes through them and gets rid of some.
I now only tend to buy books that I want to keep, and I know that at some point I will run out of space, with that in mind I have been re-arranging my shelves and I’m sure there is space for another bookcase in my little library.
Although now I am reading more, in order to keep updating this blog, I have been buying rather a lot latterly.
Ah well, who needs space for clothes, make up and shoes – I am happy with space for my books.
Oh and just so you know, the books in the photo are not being culled they are part of my TBR pile – I am going to do a booktube video on them shortly.
