You might remember, if you visit here often, that back in May I wrote about my need for some book sanity. Specifically the need to weed my collection. I've been working on this since January and since then I've found out that I'm not alone! Many of you have been trying to keep up with TBR collections or, like me, just trying to get the whole down to a more manageable size for the space allotted. I've made some good progress, but I'm getting to the point where it is going to become more difficult because I've gone through almost the entire collection and weeded out the obvious (don't have an interest anymore, will never read again, etc.).
So far (January through June):
Books out = 203
Books in = 60 (really, I couldn't help it!)
Net books out = 143
How are your weeding efforts coming along? Are you making progress? Staying even? Increasing the collection?
Update to yesterday's post:
After I posted yesterday, I realized that I didn't mention the Japanese Literature Challenge hosted by Bellezza. I've committed to read one book before January 30, 2011. Yes, I can do this! I didn't create a list this year, but will probably read Real World by Natsuo Kirino. Of course, I could pull something from last years reading list.
