Unhaul #2

In the past couple of months I have gotten rid of quite a few books. Especially after moving, I removed a whole bunch of books from my sheves. Ones I kept because they looked pretty, but I really didn’t enjoy, as well as books I bought but really wasn’t interested in anymore. This means that in total I got rid of  68 books.

Unhaul #2 - 68 books that no longer live with me
My book shelves without those 68 books (in the new house!)

I was planning on just showing everyone the list of all the books, but while making it I discovered that I had gotten rid of a lot more books than I had thought. I’m quite proud of myself to be honest. Sure, there are still books in my bookcase that I might never read or reread, but those are the ones I’d still be willing to give a shot.

Obviously, the list is still down here and if you look carefully, you might see some surprises in there. There were a few books that were/are quite popular I just didn’t enjoy very much.

What books have you decided to part with this year? Is it because you didn’t enjoy them, or for other reasons? Or perhaps you find the whole notion of getting rid of books ridiculous? Let me know in the comments!

Ps. Most of the Dutch books went to my mom, while the English and German ones were donated to a refugee center here in Germany.

    1. Thank you! I thought it was finally time to get a nice sort of ‘library’, when moving into my new house. I’m quite glad with the way it turned out!

      Ah yes, I knew that was going to happen for some people. There were a couple of books I know a lot of people liked but just didn’t work for me.
