The house has been closing in on me for quite a while now. I finally snapped and as a result, we are about to make some big changes. The kitchen is being expanded to include the dining room and the living room and kitchen are being re-floored.
In preparation for the improvements I’ve decided to either donate or sell many of my books. This is really difficult! I keep thinking “Ohhhh, but, maybe I’ll read it again!” or “What if I need it?!” etc. It’s so hard. I’m a freak about books too. No one may crease the pages, bookmarks must always be used. They must be kept away from moisture and food. (The exception to this rule are all of the Harry Potters which are frequently read in the bath…)
This morning I was practically just closing my eyes and stacking the books while trying not to look at them too clearly. It’s distressing. Hopefully posting little pictures of them will make me feel better. Like proof they existed. 😦
If you see anything you like, leave me a comment or a message on facebook. I’ll be adding to the list as books go out. The first consignment is going to the second hand bookshop tomorrow!
