Out With The Old

I finally got around to purging the books I don't want and getting rid of them yesterday. After sitting around in 5 large bags for the past couple of weeks, I managed to offload about a third of them at a local secondhand bookstore and the rest went to Goodwill. Purged. Gone from my life. And now in their place I have $35 worth of store credit to get myself a couple of books at the store. (It's a good secondhand bookstore, always full of interesting stuff.)

Next, the great wardrobe purge.

Thanks Thombeau! I put the graphics together years ago, for a blog I was going to start before I started this one (it was going to be called Chiffon Tents, as in the express "he's as camp as a row of pink chiffon tents"). That blog never was to be, but I had forgotten I'd made this until I was checking through the files on my computron. Quick name change, presto change-o!

Ur-spo, absolutely! At least I've made some room now...

"express"? I meant "expression".

yes, good for you baby. I think Goodwill is the perfect destination for those books you're too ashamed of for the secondhand bookstore to see.

I have no idea where that Unauthorized Biographpy of Suzanne Sommers came from.

The Other Andrew said...

Yarravillepaul, absolutely. Makes my little Virgo heart sing! Order must be restored...

MrPeenee, oh girl. Not even. But I will say that it was an eclectic collection that it included everything from a work on Hellenistic philosophy (mostly unread, that shit is hard yo) right the way along to some really bad trashy novels. The bookstore took what they wanted and I donated the rest. They liked the Hellenistic philosophy.

Get. Rid. Of. Books?

The Other Andrew said...

Truly. It kind of hurt, but the stuff I got rid of was mostly stuff that was a major disappointment or I will never read. Don't worry, with the hundreds (thousands? I mean, I have 7 bookcases...) of books I own, we're talking less than 1% here.
