I love books – love, love, love them. But in the past few years, I seem to love acquiring books more than reading them. So this month, I am jumping on the No Buy bandwagon (inspiration here).
Here are three bookish things (that don’t involve buying) To keep me focused on books this month:
Organizing – I’m not ready for the Marie Kondo sorting – I am overwhelmed by the thought of hauling all my books to one place. But I am using an app to record the books I own. I have scanned the barcode for most of my books and can sort, tag, and categorize. I can also create a handy, printable list. I also have one small notebook that is going to be my reading journal.
Purging – as I am sorting and recording, I am finding book that I know I will not read. Or books I have read but won’t re-read. These are going into a donation box. Hopefully someone else can enjoy these books.
Reading – actually taking a book from my shelf (paper, electronic, or audio) and reading it. Why am I saving them? Books can’t feel very loved if I don’t read them.i have pulled two books to get me started in January. And as of today, I feel like I am on track!
Off to visit Carole with my 3 things today.
