My darling daughter gave me an electronic reader for Christmas. As someone who enjoys the feel of a book in my hands, turning the pages, the smell of paper that’s been pressed between covers for a long time, I’m surprised at how much I’m enjoying the reader!
We’re a household of book hoarders. If I were to cook a meal a day from one of my kajillion cookbooks, I could cook the rest of my life without ever repeating a recipe! It’s hard for us to part with our treasures. However, our apartment is not getting bigger and we have to be more discerning about what we keep and find nice homes for what we can bear to liberate.
It’s a process.
