102 Things in 1001 Days

In light of the spring cleaning/organizing/decluttering I did, came this item to add to my list…….

READ ALL THE BOOKS I HAVE!

I realized I had books which I had leafed through, skimmed over, had on my shelf to read, but had not read.  So over the 1001 days I will actually READ the books.  Although I purged a ton of books before I moved last July, I could probably purge again.  This will help.  By actually saying I have read the book I can decide whether it is a “keeper” or not.

Most of the books which are on my shelf and unread are non-fiction, “how-to”, self-help type books.  I moved my fiction that I keep to a smaller bookshelf in the living room because OD reads them too.

So on December 31, 2011 I should be much more knowledgeable about all kinds of things…from writing to creativity to how to talk to fairies (boy, would I like to talk to the fey in Laurell K Hamilton’s books!)  I have several “page a day” type books I would like to go through.

Of course, in the process of putting the books back on the shelves I am making a catalog of all the books I do have.  That’s for the Virgo in me.

  1. Hey There,

    Thanks so much for stopping by my blog (via Collage Diva). It was great to meet you - come again soon.

    I too have an enormous collection of books to read - I really should just accept the fact there is not enough time to read them all and just donate them!
