I realize as I move things to our new home that some things have to go. I'm weeding out my book collection drastically. I'm keeping those I love, the ones I know for certain I'll read again. There are others I've kept, intending to re-read: Now I realize I'll never get around to them again.
I may have some sort of giveaway before it's all finished, so stay tuned, you bookworms.
Books I'll keep:
All my Mark Rashid books... even if I no longer have a horse.
"An Hour Before Daylight" by Jimmy Carter
The book my friend Virginia Farless wrote (she's Chonda Pierces' mom).
A dozen or so diaries and journals I kept back when I used pen and paper and photos and newspaper clippings to chronicle events, rather than blabbing about my insignificant life on the Internet.
A book about the history of my little town, starting back before Civil War times.
"Peace Like a River"
Egermeier's Bible Story Book: as a ten-year-old, I'd stay awake reading it in my bedroom, soaking ginger snaps in a cup of milk as I read. My mom would check on me, see the light on, and remove a fuse from the fusebox so I'd go to sleep.
And so many more.
