So, this weekend my friends, Sarah and Steve, came over to help me get my books reorganized, and it was a complete success! I get a little overzealous in my organizing sometimes as I like to have all of my book alphabetized by author, and over the last couple of months, my shelves were getting rather disorganized and I was getting discouraged at not always knowing where a particular book is.
In the midst of the the "Great Book Migration" (as I was calling it), I was also working through a "Great Book Purge". There were several books on my shelves that I knew I wouldn't be reading again (or at all, in some cases), so away those went. I'll have to see if I can get an exact count on how many books left my shelves.
Now, to try to figure out what to read next. I was working my way through a pile of books that were stacked on the floor next to my bed, but those have been added into my regular books now, so I don't know where to start. Part of me is thinking about just selecting a bookshelf and reading through the books on that shelf that I haven't read yet, just to get an eclectic choice of books. We'll see. No matter how I go around it though, I'm grateful for having my books in order again!
I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads & Instagram connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!
