Spring Cleaning Poll!

I have been spring cleaning like crazy this weekend, which means making the harrowing decision of which books to keep and which ones to get rid of. Very few times is it an easy choice, usually when the books were mediocre (goodbye Matched trilogy!). But too often it feels like giving up your own children.

All in all, 14 books got the ax, and I donated them to my local library. Many of them were old books of comic strips, so it felt nice knowing other children could enjoy them like I did.

I still prefer physical books and since I don’t own an e-reader, I make it a ritual to regularly go through my collection and thin the herd. Otherwise, they’ll just end up stacked everywhere, and the disorganization would drive me batty!

I do the same for my clothing, as I dropped off three full bags at Goodwill today. But let’s face it, if books are my children, then my clothes are mere godchildren. I’m much less sentimental toward them, and considering the wear and tear they go through, it’s pretty easy to let them go. (Note: this is probably why no one asks me to be the guardian of their kids! Lol)

Jokes aside, I thought that this would be a good chance to ask about your own spring cleaning! Answer the poll questions, and provide more details in the comments!

  1. Nice blog… At first I was skeptical of the whole e-reader thing but now I have to admit it’s just so easy to buy books on a whim… Although, I do like going to the small independent bookstore in our neighbourhood and just see what’s out…

    • Thanks! Yes I bet even if I bought an e-reader, I would still check out books in the store just to decide whether I would enjoy them. That would prevent impulse buys for sure!
