Freebies : Tidying Up

Processed with MOLDIV

Tidying Up with Marie Kondo I decided I am not watching the Netflix show. I don’t need anyone telling me how to organize. My purging game is strong. I have purged hundreds of reflections and articles on this blog alone. In my personal life I purged cookbooks more than once. I donate my used magazines to the gym I no longer attend. I have cataloged all my DVDs and have donated the doubles. My kitchen cabinets and pantry are stunning, if I must say so myself. I am organizing my digital photos (thank you ScanMyPhotos for doing the heavy lifting and digitalizing them all), but now I am cataloging the books and Damyanti Biswas post Do Your Books Need to Spark Joy? spoke to me. Like her I have books by the bedside; in the bathroom, kitchen, and office, of course; oh, and don’t forget the occasional coffee table book. We have a beautiful tower of coffee table books in our living room. This year I have taken on the task of cataloging every book. I also want to read these books, and as I catalog them I will make my own reading list. Those who don’t pass the 50-page test, or those that are not worth reading again will be offered to you. Here is my first list of freebies. If you’re in the United States and interested in a book on the list, send me a email.

    Nice idea, sharing or giving books. Unfortunately I don’t live in the US, but I really appreciate. I also agree about Marie Kondo: I can’t stand her!
