April 2016 Book Unhauling

BookUnhauling

Good  Monday morning everyone. Its that time of the month where I show what books I am unhauling this month. I had so much success last year unhauling books that I thought I would continue this again for 2016.

I decided way back in  January (2015) that I wanted to document how many books I was giving away each month to see if I was making any kind of dent in my book collection.

I know last year I probably brought in more then I was actually giving away so this year I am trying to be cautious with my book buying and I am giving myself a budget each time I go shopping in hopes that it will curb my spending.

So each month I will be posting about what books I am unhauling and then another monthly post will be what books I physically bought in the month.

Are you a constant book buyer? Can you resist buying books on a weekly bases? Please tell me I am not alone in this?

I am doing a little bit of spring cleaning mostly to the bookcases in my living room and switching things up with organizing and then gradually starting to go through the boxes in the basement so more will be unhauled this upcoming summer.

Take a look at what I unhauled this month:

  1. Wow! Good for you!

  2. Great job! I got rid of 80 books earlier this year, and it was awesome to have more room on the shelves.

  3. Great job! I donated most of my books. It was hard but I only reader on my Kobo. I wouldn’t pick up physical books anymore.
