It's that time of the year again - time to de-clutter your life, fix things you've been meaning to fix, clean hard-to-reach areas you're only motivated to wrestle with like twice a year, and maybe even donate that rack of clothes sitting in the back of your closet, unloved and unworn. Ah, Spring Cleaning.
For book lovers, it can also mean it's time to de-clutter the shelves. Do you have piles of books everywhere, stacked precariously in an organized mess? It might be time to shake things up and trim the collection down. Here are some ideas for making your collection more manageable, and maybe even more meaningful.
And before anyone sends me a snooty comment: I'm not saying you have to prune your collection. If you don't want to, then don't. But maybe consider re-organizing it, building or buying new shelves to replace the piles lying around the house, giving everyone stubbed toes and looming over your small pets, or maybe even putting some of them away in storage somewhere. The general idea is to de-clutter - get some more breathing room!
