While browsing on Amazon.com a few weeks ago, I ran across Susan Hill's book, Howards End is on the Landing, and was instantly intrigued with her accomplishment. I love the idea of taking a hiatus from book buying (the logistics of which will involve phenomenal restraint) and concentrate on what I have already purchased.
So here begins my journey...into my own library. It's the perfect time for it. This is my birthday month - as good a time as any
to begin with a new resolution, perhaps without the pressures of the New Year
attached to it. And having recently moved, I have completely unpacked all my
books, reorganized, purged the duds, duplicates and already reads, and become
reacquainted with my small collection.
My goal is to make a visible and memorable dent in my personal library by September 30, 2012. I'm going to track my progress, and hopefully at the end, I will have read more good books than bad, and perhaps I will have found a few ridiculously good books and passed them along to friends who will love them like I did. Wish me luck...and come along for the ride.
