I'm not sure what has come over me, but today I purged more books than I ever thought possible. This is just the view of my mother-in-law's backseat. Her trunk was also full and so was my trunk. This does not include the boxes of books I gave to my brother's family, or a few more boxes I am gathering still. And, this is just what I have given away. Sadly, I have not read a lot of what I gave away. I am hoping this is a lesson to myself that from now on I don't need to buy books. I already use the library, but still have bought books. I can't read books from both of those places and still have any time to do anything else. In addition to purging books, I had some great helpers who helped construct new IKEA shelves for me. So, as soon as I get myself organized, I will share pictures of my new library.
