  1. I ve only written one other review so please cut me some slack if I make any errors of etiquette Anyway, I loved this single I swear she was inside MY head when she wrote it I have tried many times to murder my library but I just don t have it in me I do usually manage to give away a few books but never enough to make a difference I would love to have space to display photos and art objects I have picked up during my travels but giving away a well loved book, whether I ll ever read it again or n [...]


  2. I ordered this Kindle book precisely because I am going through the painful process of downsizing my own library I guess I was looking for some humor to ease the shame of murdering a library Grant s book offers that a kind of ironic whimsy that simply presents the topic from the standpoint of Someone Who Understands what it is all about It was not revelatory, exactly, but affirming Yes, there are others like me who keep books around for a variety of fuzzy reasons They describe who we are, someho [...]


  3. This Kindle single essay uses narrative to argue physical book vs ebook As the author moves from a large house with numerous shelves, constituting a library of trophy books, to a smaller flat with less space, she brings up the arguments we ve all seen before, but on a personal level Older eyes can no longer read the small typefaces of some books Few are interested in hand me down libraries any The strong of words each original author wrote were longhand, typewriter, or computer, completely detac [...]


  4. This was a brief, enjoyable read I purchased this book because I am currently wrestling with the same dilemma the author addresses.I recommend this to bibliophiles who have felt ambivalent about their print books in an age of digital books It is worth the read, if only to know that your feelings about your library are valid whatever they may be.


  5. Where once we had personal relationships with our bookspages folded over, passages underlined, napkins marking places we loved and wanted to remember, downsizing has led many of my book coveting generation to murderous complicity with Linda Grant s mission Tossing old, dear friends in boxes for donation, possibly never to be read again, feels traitorous I truly enjoyed the shared grief along with the hidden secret relief of carrying my Kindle or iPad loaded with volumes that has now become my co [...]


  6. Liked the author I am getting older I have started to clear things out of my basement and garage There are boxes of books to go through and many of them will not be wanted by others It is extremely hard to eliminate books from a personal library because they are friends Before one of my reading friends and I purchased kindles, we exchanged paper backs as we had some reading genres in common Now we recommend books to each other.It is sad that so many younger people do not have an interest in read [...]


  7. I enjoyed reading this short tale of a writer s heartbreaking decision of depleting her 50 year old personal and professional library As she takes the reader through the history on how she amassed so many books and why, the question lies what will she do with them all when she moves The story was too short, I enjoyed her writing, humor, and wit I wanted to learn about her I concur with Grants argument about coming to accept an Ereader It did feel a bit like betrayal but you can carry a lot of bo [...]


  8. Sad, but full of truth about the relationship between books and technology I m currently experiencing the same dilemma, getting rid of books from my personal library to declutter, yet they re still a sense of joy, holding so many childhood memories The writer and the reader are at war How true.

  10. A short kindle read that won t be adding to my storage difficulties It s always interesting for me to see how other bookaholics deal both physically and emotionally with the issues that our shared passion causes.Unashamedly I do have an emotional attachment to my collection cum library, probably as a collective entity, as opposed to any individual love for a random book that might be plucked in isolation from a shelf.I didn t have the all same issues as the author insofar as all my books have be [...]
