I just pruned our bookshelf and removed around 80 books. Duplicate books and books that I won't ever read. We're taking them to the local Reuse Centre. I estimate that we still have more than 900 books left, so I've still got stuff to read 🙂
@sazius Ten year ago, I had about 32 shelf-meters of books. We were going to move abroad, so I got rid of about half ("everything excpet the really good ones"), and put the rest into storage. Five years ago we moved back and I got my precious books from storage. They didn't feel all that precious anymore, as physical objects. I've since gotten rid of all the remaining ones. I now have zero physical books.
@liw I agree, and I've been getting rid of a lot of stuff lately. I still have a lot left, though. Some of it that I've collected over the years, and much of it inherited from my dad. It's just a long process for me, especially with books... also I somehow really prefer reading physical books over ebooks, I don't know why.
