This gave me the opportunity to go through the book box. Our family loves to read. We have countless books. A couple years ago I decided that the books needed to be kept in one place, so we came up with the "book box".
|Not usually this neat|
These are just our 'family room books'. We have more in the play room, and each of the girls has their own book shelf upstairs. Tia prefers to keep her special Princess collection up in her own room where she can keep them away from her baby sister.
Anyway, I thought I could make a dent in the book box and bring some to the Good Will. Not such an easy task after all. It's not just that the kids don't want to part with any of the books, but I too have my favorites that I won't give up.
In most areas I'm the exact opposite of those "Hoarders" you see on that new TV show. I get rid of just about everything! I have at least one Good Will bag ready each week, and I often give hefty amounts of clothes to other friends who have little girls. But for some reason I can't do that with books. I'm a book hoarder!
Since I was going through the box, I thought I'd share with you some of my most favorites.
So, after all that I only pulled one book out to give away. The rest are with us for a while longer. I'll live with the occasional book clutter because it means I have kids who love to read. That's good enough for me.
