Books are friends
Parting with books is always a little sad. Rather like parting with friends. But as one friend once said, quoting I assume, friends come into your life for a reason, a season, or for life. Unless it's for life, then let them go when the time comes. Same with books. I've been hanging on to some of these for decades without even being aware of their existence. I still have many, but most are as yet unread. When I've read them, they'll join the list until I can give them away. If there are no takers, it might be to charity shops sometime before the end of January.
