In my “Resolutions for 2012,” #10 was “I shall make a 10th resolution before February 29th, 2012.” I now have one.
After doing a bit of cleaning and reorganizing ’round the house this weekend, it occurred to me that roughly 82% of the total mass of my house is books. In fact, two of the piles were declared lode-bearing by the inspector. It’s time to renew one of my old resolutions from a few years back. Thus do I hereby resolve that:
10. I shall put all the books I’ve bought but not yet read on a particular shelf, and either read, sell or give away more than half of them.
The closing of Borders was a blessing in disguise.
