Once I was obsessed with owning books. If I went to someone’s house who had no books on their shelves right away I knew I had no business with them. It was an instant line in the sand. I’d think: You have no books, you have no worth. Books on my shelves at home were testaments to who I was and wanted to be. Well, surprise, surprise I’ve changed.
The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up (highly recommended) states that holding onto things you intend to one day read, like books, actually holds you back from ever reading them in the first place. I absolutely know this to be true! So, a decision was made to get rid of all my books, except for a very choice few I can’t bear to part with. One by one they leave my shelves and I kiss them goodbye and farewell. I’m no longer the girl who reads Checkhov and dark Eastern European novels and then exchanges meaningful glances with my bookshelf as I go about my day.
TODAY anytime I hear about a great book, wammo it gets added to my hold list on the public library app. Then when it’s available I get an email to go pick it up from the branch I selected. No more buying books! Plus, on my many trips to the library I pick up armfuls of books for the kids, plus a few coffee table books to inspire my week. It’s such a win-win situation.
3 things on my Library hold list:
1. How to Build A Well-lived, Joyful Life by William Burnett
2. You are a Badass at Making Money by Jen Sincero
3. Unfu*k Yourself – Get out of your Head and into your Life by John Gary
