When I downsized to a small cottage about six years ago, I had to pare down the number of books I owned. This was a huge issue for me. I’m a book fanatic. All hope is lost when I walk into a bookstore. We’re talking hundreds of dollars a visit. In fact, if I have less than 15 books scattered around the house waiting to be read, I get nervous!
As you can image, this need to reduce my library to a manageable level for the new house – all of 1050 square feet – caused much rending of garments and gnashing of teeth. Instead of spiraling down into analysis paralysis, I simply created a three-step process to deal with the situation. I am, after all, a process guy!
