Sorting Books

Tuesday 8th October 2013

The living room has been re decorated and now I have to put all the books back, but before I do I am going to sort them. I have been putting it off because I no longer know what to keep and what not to. I used to keep everything I read, I used to cherish my books. It used to gladden my heart to see the books on the shelves, but something has changed, something is different and I don't know why and it saddens me. Books just don't quite hold the same value for me that they did. It's not that I don't still love reading or holding a book so it is all a puzzle to me. I think the shift occurred when price regulation was done away with and large book shops started offering three books for the price of two, like buying a bag of apples. Don't get me wrong I still love books I will always surround myself with books but maybe I will have fewer of them, ones that I can remember I have. Oh and then there's the Kindle issue ....
