Great post. Really made me think about all the books I need to go through and get rid of. As you said, certain volumes need to stay, for they are referenced quite often - Suzuki's Zen and anything by Brian Tracy come to mind - but there are so many I can do without or at least put in storage. It almost seems heresy to apply 'de-cluttering' to books, but you make many valid points.

Best to you,

My newly zealous book-purging mood is driven in part by the fear of becoming one of those pathetic book fetishists who roams from sale to sale, snowballing acquisition after impulsive acquisition into a gigantic Katamari of dusty, obscure ink and paper.

Colin, you're getting spam more less frequently. some are just copy/paste from your own writing like the one above. (delete this msg after you read it)

I know what you mean. Sometimes I have to have a moment alone just to 'center' myself. I know that I'm a good person even though I don't feel good all the time. If someone insults me or ridicules me, it hurts my feelings & makes me feel bad, but it doesn't change who I am on the inside.
