Or does anyone else have a hard time cleaning their bookshelf? I'm not talking getting rid of homescholing books, I'm talking about all the other stuff. We have a nice "collection" of picture books and there are some I'm happy to send on their way, but others I have fond memories reading to my kids even tho they are pretty much considered "twaddle". Or even worse, ones I love from my childhood.
Then there are the books that have been gifted to me (old National Geographic books mainly) that I really don't want, but am afraid if I donate them, then I'm going to regret it later. I'm really not a packrat, so why am I having such a hard time?
Lastly, my MIL found us a set of World Book encyclopedias at a garage sale this summer. I had asked her last school year to keep her eyes open for a bargain set and she found it for $5! They are early 1990's, but really nothing changes with the history, they just add to them. And now I feel bad having them hog up the bookshelf - do we need them and will we really use them? I just hate for my kids to rely on Google for any research, shouldn't they need to know how to look things up in books? Plus they were only $5, so I hate to get rid of them now.
Give me words of wisdom SCM gang! TIA! :-)
