The next section in Marie Kondo’s downsizing plan is books. For me, this was tough but for Christopher, this was a breeze.
We both have clunky old versions of Kindles that we use regularly, but there is something about having a book in your hands that the e-reader experience will never duplicate.
When we moved, books were the category I spent the most time downsizing, and we donated about 150 books to Goodwill.
I broke the rules for this section and kept several books that I’ve had for a while and still intend to read. This is a battle to be continued another day.
At the end of the day, we have set aside 26 books for donation. Hey, progress is progress.
Update: I finally read one of the someday books from my bookshelf, and it felt like a great accomplishment. For anyone interested in learning about bipolar mania, I can now recommend Andy Behrman’s Electroboy.
