My Book Shelf: The 30 books I own(!)

The following are the only books that I own physical copies of.  All the rest of them were either sold or donated to charities when I started to become minimalist. It took a couple years to get here.

I owned well over 1,000 books(!) at one point and slowly whittled them down to the copies listed below.

My hubby on the other hand likes to have physical copies of books; mostly for reference as he has many books on coding (which incidentally helped to give him the knowledge to help build this website). His books and mine play nice on our bookshelves. It’s wonderful. <3

It also amuses me to no end that he actually owns more books now than I do even though I get to read much more often than he does.

Anyways, I always request e-reader copies for advance books to review so I can get the book quicker, have less clutter, and it is much cheaper for the publishing companies that way.

  1. Next time you visit, I hope you will help me organize my books. They are spilling over my two book cases onto the floor! Too many books!
