So we all know I have this problem with hoarding books right? Can be a problem but it’s got to be better than hoarding animals!
I was looking at my google play and kindle bookshelves and realised that I have no clue why I downloaded about half of them; they are totally not my genre. Probably to get my book count up so that I don’t get “book anxiety”. I am pretty sure that half the books in my bookshelves won’t get read so what’s the point in having them there? They are just taking up space on my tablet and annoying me, taunting me trying to get me to read them when I have zero interest in doing so.
Time to declutter! It is really difficult for me to get rid of books, so I went into my bookshelves with an aggressive attitude and culled everything that I knew deep down I would not read.
The result: – I now have a total of 14 books over the 2 bookshelves. Pretty good I think as I had 27 this morning. All I have now are books that I know I will read and enjoy …. Gawd I had some rubbish in there! (I’m sure they were great books just not my cup of tea).
Now this is where the bipolar comes in. I am telling myself that now I have decluttered my bookshelves I have all this room for some new books …… hehe guess who is going book shopping!
So really I haven’t decluttered at all, I am just swapping books that I know I won’t read for ones that I will. My book count will be way up again before I know it, that’s not a problem though if I am actually going to read the books hey?
