Simplify your Life: 09/29/06
One of my favorite bits of BookCrossing is the passing along of books to other readers. While the site was designed for the karma of books traveling from wild releases, I usually send my books along to other known BookCrossers with help from one or two adjunct sites, BookRelay and Cliff's Wishlist.
Simplify Your Life fits nicely with BookCrossing as it covers various ways to declutter one's life. Fortunately I don't have many knickknacks but I do have a lot of books. Now with decluttering the advice is to get rid of things no longer (or never) used. With my books, I have dozens (hundreds?) of books I have gotten as library sales or gifts or through Freecycle that I haven't read. I do still want to read them and I am making an effort to get them read. Since 2003, I have significantly slowed down my acquiring of books and have put a great deal of effort in reading and releasing what books I do have. I've managed to pare things down by about 900 books.
Here is my BookCrossing review:
