While the Kindle or iPad has replaced the hardcover book for many, some of us still have shelves and piles overflowing with decades of accumulated books. These books may represent a time in our life, a phase in our career or just deeply appreciated words of wisdom, and it’s hard to part with them. But there comes a time when life moves on and you need to think about jettisoning at least some of your collection. Ann Richardson, herself an author of such books as Celebrating Grandmothers, has some gentle advice over at Sixty and Me for starting the process of culling and sorting in order to determine which books must go. Take a look at her suggestions Here. And if you’re looking for a next home for these books, you might try the suggestions on Get Rid Of Things, a website full of advice on how to rid yourself of virtually anything.
