Books are a hindrance to persisting stupidity…Spanish proverb
Weeding continues here. Once the attic was done, it felt so good I wanted to keep going. So midmorning I started on the bookcase in my office. Oh my, where to begin? How could I turn loose of any one of them?
But begin I did. None were bad books, but they were just less worth the room they took than other favorites. A lot of poetry books were removed, but a whole basket remain. I pulled some novels…some children’s books…a few reference type books I used in the classroom. Some I set aside to look at one more time before letting go.
I took my books to the public library where some will be shelved and some will be put on their resale shelves as fund raising for the library. I hurried them right down this afternoon before any could just back out of the boxes!
And before I look too saintly, I must confess to making an order last night to Lou Turner and her High Hill Press.
