KonMari Clutter...

Getting rid of books...yea or nay?!?

Marie Kondo...organization goddess or Wicked Witch of the Books?

Personally, I don't think there is one set answer for everyone. It depends on each person and their personal outlook on the written word.

If you are a person who cherishes books, rereads them, or sees them as art or perhaps life-changers...then by all means, keep your books! Let them spark your joy! 

Just be careful to avoid hoarder status - books are heavy and floors collapse.

If you are the kind of person who likes to read a book and move on, or someone who has limited space, read them and move them out (preferably to someone else who will read and appreciate them rather than tossing them in the trash!).

Or perhaps you are like me, I read books...and then put them into a "move on" pile or a "must keep forever" pile. That pile is limited, but it does exist.

Do what is right for you and you will always have just the right amount of books on hand "sparking joy".
