    Books I’m Getting Rid Of

    I’ve been putting this off for the longest time, but I may finally apply minimalism to my book collection (at least a little bit).

    I’ve always said that my book collection is excluded from my minimalist lifestyle. I was working hard towards a massive home library that had each and every book I had read in my lifetime, whether I enjoyed the book or not. I spent hours hunting down the books I read in childhood, so I could add them to my Goodreads profile and have the number of books I’d read be complete.

    I no longer feel like this fits me. I still want to have a massive home library, but when I look at my shelves, I want to see books that I remember having read. Books that I rated at least 3 stars, books I enjoyed. Books that mean something to me. Books I’d consider re-reading. It may take me a little longer to have my three IKEA Billy shelves all filled up, but it’s worth it if it means I can look at my book collection and feel joy.

    I will make sure all of these books find a good home, whether that’s through selling them, or donating them to Better World Books.

    If you’re curious about why I got rid of certain books, keep reading.
