I’ve had to do a lot of clearing and tidying in a very short space of time as we have had some visitors to stay recently. I find letting go of clothes relatively easy, but when it comes to books, they have to be prised out of my hands.
By chance I went to a church book sale the other week. I wasn’t expecting very much, but it was amazing – a huge room packed with books, all laid out neatly and sorted by subject. I belong to a book club, and I always look out to borrow or pick up book club books as cheaply as I can. On the biography table I spotted these three:
The Clare Balding book is on our book club list for this year, so I picked it up, along with the other two which I have wanted to read for a while. Total cost? £1.50. So I got a frugal bargain, but I am going to have to pass them on when I have read them so I don’t add to the book clutter.
The other thing I did recently with one eye on the piles of books was to buy a Kobo when it was on offer. Again, I’ve bought a couple of book club books when they were reduced, and at least they are out there in the ether somewhere.
What is your clutter weakness?
Until next time, Tawney
