Books are taking over my house. I have to-be-read piles, give-to-the-church-library piles, return-piles, and put-on-the-bookshelf-for-eternity piles. It's hard for me to get rid of books, which is one of the reasons I love my Kindle. I can still read and not have clutter around my house. Well, that's the goal anyway.
So here's my question for you today. How do you decide which books to keep and which ones to give away? I know it's a hard question, so you may want to consider this after you've had your morning coffee.
Is it the breath-taking plot? The unforgettable characters? The autograph on the front? The sentimental value (a book from Great Aunt Gertrude the day before she died)?
There are books in your home you have been unable to part with--what makes them special to you?
