|I will never part with my Diana Gabaldon books!|
So what to do? I can’t deny myself the joy a physical book brings to my life. But I also don’t want to accumulate a huge amount of books right now. I have no where to put them!
Well, I decicded to donate some of them again. Not the books I reread every so often, of course, such as the Outlander series or Harry Potter books. Instead, I will donate the ones I know I won’t read again.
This time, I took my used books to Books for America. They build and support libraries and schools in the DC area as well as support reading programs. I stopped by their store recently to see what kind of selection they have. I was surprised to see that they practically have everything - including a book about the Pskovian Russian Icons (in Russian even!). So, if I really want to buy a book instead of check one out from the library, I can do so at Books for America at a reasonable price - most books are around $2 and they are in great condition.
I’m happy to report that they took all of the books I brought them (two bags full) - so now the books I decided to keep actually fit nicely on the shelves!
