News everyone! news! pull up a chair, not that one it’s broken, right, are you comfortable?
My sister-in-law and I, after much wanting to and thinking about how it would be nice some day, are officially running our own craft fair! I have a cake business and Anna (for that is her name) is into crafting so it will be a chance for us to run our own stands while showcasing other local crafters and their amazing skills. We have the venue and we’re in the process of securing stall holders now, but it’s very exciting for me and I’ll most likely blog about it again.
But what about the books you say? Well, we want to have a secondhand book stall, because frankly all events are improved 100% by having one. But do we have books we want to get rid of? Anna does, but when it comes to novels I am a bit of a hoarder and the thought of stripping my shelves and wantonly chucking them into a suitcase for other people to pour over was somewhat stomach churning.
However, I told myself, that is silly. I am approaching what you might call overfull capacity in the book department, and while I love to buy books, read books and look at the lovely lines off books in my house. I don’t like to fall over books, or have them topple of the shelves and kill me.
So I tried very hard and decided I could part with a few. These are the books I know I will never read again (and I’m not much of a re-reader anyway), or I have duplicate copies off. No offence to any of these books, it was great, but you can be loved by others now.
How many books do you think you could part with?
PS. Elinor, I hope you don’t think it rude that I’m going to be getting rid of The Hunger Games which you bought me. I did read and really enjoy them so thanks, I hope someone else will have some hungry hungry hippo games now.
