books

Books: I have thousands. How can I let them go? Some are so dear to me I would read them over and over—if I had the time. Others, I mean to get around to, but on starting them, I find they don’t hold my interest. So why do I hang on to them all? Anymore I try to avoid bookstores because I cannot leave without at least three books. Am I a bookaholic? Help! I need suggestions on how to thin down my burgeoning bookshelves or soon I won’t be able to make my way out of my house and will be buried under tons of books. (Did I ever mention I have a tendency towards exaggeration?) Please, let me know if there are others out there who have a similar problem. It would be nice to know I am not alone. And maybe we can a start a books anonymous association.

About dmdubay

Since retiring from Northwest Airlines and moving to the Pacific Northwest, I have more time to devote to writing. My first novel, "Tales of Two Sisters" was published over a year ago. I have been writing poetry for a long time and am attempting to collate my poetry into a short book, with pictures. A sequel to "Tales of Two Sisters" should be getting closer to completion soon. Gardening and tending the vineyard take a lot of time in the summer. Even though I love the outdoors, these activities do cut down on my writing. So I appreciate that wintertime allows me time to write. Writing, for me, is what brings things into focus and helps me to make sense of the things that life brings. It is a gift to me and I hope that it will be to you also.

    I had the same problem Darleen.
    I took a lot of my books to Title wave, a used book
    store, and now I try to use the library whenever
    we read a book at book group.
