I spent the weekend cleaning in my store room and office and found myself in the midst of stacks of books.
I am not really a pack-rat, but books seem to have a way of accumulating around me. Many of the titles were must-have books from years past.
Actually, I am the opposite of a pack-rat. I have a tendency at times to want to simplify and purge whatever seems like excess around me. The only problem is that I sometimes later wish I had the things that seemed undesirable while I was cleaning.
So here I am with stacks of books and a compulsion to ruthlessly downsize.
I guess there's no way to know today which ones I will be wishing for down the road.
