There may be a bit less Savidge Reads over the next couple of days, apart from tomorrow’s Sensation Season Sunday of course, as I have a few days off both of the jobs. Not only will I be having something of a read-a-thon and time away from the dangerously distracting (in the most delightful way) internet but I am making an effort to have a great book sort and a big book clear out. Thats right I am going to be ruthless.
I have made a very small start already and as you can see (the above is the two boxes in the spare room, there is also a wardrobe filled in there, two boxes in the lounge, three in my room as well as seven shelves full and also at last count five random piles of books to get through) however I think this is going to take quite a while. I am on the look out for modern Sensation novels, as you can see Silent in the Grave (which Kim mentioned) is peeking out at the bottom of the picture, I am sure there are a lot more lurking in the boxes etc. I will mainly be hunting for the books I am just not really going to read, either in the next year or so… or ever at all!
I have also rather dangerously recently re-joined Read It Swap It but only the choice few will go on there… the rest are off to the 5 for £2 charity shop which I take so much from and never give anything to. I do hope they find good new homes, mind you if I start worrying that they won’t I shall not part with them so must not think about it. Right I must stop procrastinating and get on with the job, I will see you (possibly slightly bereft) on the other side.
Does anyone else have a good clear out of their book hordes now and again or is it just me?
