    Yeah, it can be difficult getting rid of too many books, or the wrong books, all because you’re in a purging mindset. I tend to cull my books in two steps: off the bookshelf and into a purge pile first. Then later I go through the pile, and if I still don’t want to keep the book, I can let it go without (too much) worry. However, it’s taken me several purges-with-regret to get to this stage.

    I use AmazonSmile to support NaNoWriMo. I didn’t ever think that Amazon might not have a good system for vetting their charities, though.

      That’s a great way to purge your books. I often do it that way myself, but mostly because I put them in the box, and then it sits there in the basement until one of us remembers to take it to the library to donate, or to the used bookstore to sell (depending on the box.) Perhaps I’ll be a little more intentional about it in the future.

      I didn’t think of using AmazonSmile for NaNoWriMo! Good idea. I wonder if AO3 is on there, too.
