How to Stop Accumulating Books
Why would I stop accumulating books? I just need to trade and donate out some of my overflow that's all! Whats wrong with sagging shelves on every wall and boxes stacked all over the place? WHAT'S WRONG WITH IT? I would recommend AGAINST following most of the suggestions given in this article, other than giving away books no longer wanted. DO NOT put labels on your book spines or shelve different-sized books together (keep same-sized volumes together even if they are unrelated). I will eat your family if you do.
1. Cull your existing collection. Look in the yellow pages of your local phone book under "Books - Used." Sites like Amazon.com and Half.com allow individuals to sell books. break your books up into the following piles, and decide which ones get to stay: Reference books. Books you've already read, that you want to keep. Books you haven't read yet. Set a "read-to-purchase ratio". Make a “syllabus” of books to read. pick out the next 10-14 books you want to read. Make a "to buy" list. If you buy a book, immediately get rid of a book you already have. Use the library: most library systems will lend you books from anywhere in their system. Use the library for downloading ebooks: many libraries offer a service that allows you to download ebooks to your pc. Purchase and collect your books on an e-Book reader (like Kindle Wireless). If you have room for them and you still think "I'm going to read (or re-read) that someday", keep them.
