Tosses and Turns: Letting Go of Books—Yay or Nay?

by KB Meniado

Welcome to Tosses and Turns, where I rant-chant about whatever reading-related issue that has been keeping me up at night.

But after I’ve done it, I fall into this misery of missing all the books I’ve let go of, leading me to restock, a.k.a. buying possibly even more books.

It’s a tiring, evil, vicious circle.

Is it hard to let go of books or is it just me? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  2. What about e-books? Those are still books. Now the problem is a big memory for an external hard drive for all those documents and the I dread the days where I have to pick out the books I have to delete from my device to get more memory space. All in all it’s a Bibliophile’s hoarding problem. lol. You are not alone. 😁
