I am a book hoarder. I find it almost impossible to throw away my books and my kid’s books, but weirdly, not at all difficult to throw away my husband’s books. Anyway, my summer goal is to read books and donate those that don’t make the cut. And by cut, I mean stars. Below, is a book log I made for the girls. As we read the books we will rate them and give away those with less than three stars (maybe four, if we are rating high). I believe that our house has to be paired down some to look nice. Having too much stuff clutters not only my home but also stifles my creativity. For me, having unread books lying around feels like a list of to-do’s I’m not accomplishing.
