Book donations

I love books. I love to read books, borrow books, buy books, give books as gifts... I absolutely love books. Even though I don't get to read as much as I used to I still read a lot. (As a matter of fact I want to post some book reviews as soon as I get a chance.)

Today, while out with the children, I saw new book donation bins. One was at Wal-Mart and I think the other was at Kroger -- both in Fayetteville. I don't remember the name of the organization, but it had to do with literacy, of course.

I said to the teenager, "Maybe I can donate some of my books instead of trying to sell them or give them away." (Like on She, another book lover, nodded in agreement. You see, I have so many books that I don't have anywhere to put them. There are some stacked under my bed and I think I still have a box full in storage. Every bookshelf that I have is filled and even my desk and several sections filled with books. My goal is to have a library in my dream house -- a room that has wall to wall and floor to ceiling bookshelves that are covered with books.

Oh that would be so glorious.

Novels, biographies, historical, poetry, cultural, business, career, finance, health, religious, art... you name it and I want it to be in my library.

The reality is that I'm not in my dream house and I don't have anywhere for all of my books. The dilemma is: Will I be able to part with them even for a good cause?
