Well, okay, only some comes under the classification of junk. There is also valuable research material -- magazines and newspaper cuttings and other items of interest which I go through every so often for inspiration -- and my keeper shelves. During my clean-ups I generally close the cupboard door on my keepers. They're classified as "keepers" for a reason. They stay.
But this time I got to thinking. Why am I keeping these books? 80-90% of my reading these days is digital. I've started to recollect my favourite authors, favourite series, in digital format. Do I need the paperback version when I'm not selecting my reading material from these shelves?
And so I got to work.
I couldn't let go my absolute favourites. I still have a reduced-by-half keepers cupboard. Many are hardbacks and/or signed copies. Another selection of favourites was moved into this box, currently located beneath my writing desk. It could take a little while longer to convince myself to let them go for good.
So, tell me, are you a keeper? Has the shift to digital reading changed your "keeping" habits? And which one series -- or author -- could you never part with?
