I’ve been going through my shelves for a while now. There was a massive purge about a month ago. I gave close to 200 books to the Salvation Army and close to 100 more to friends. Since then I’ve been critically eyeing my shelves on a weekly basis.
Over years of doing this, usually centered around moving or the prospect of moving, I have only one giveaway regret. Not bad all things considered. My regret? The Sonja Blue Series. Honestly can’t remember if I gave it away or it was lost.
Presently my tastes are shifting again. While I’m still reading romance, my eye is being drawn more to urban fantasy and mysteries. It’ll shift again, no doubt.
Does anyone else go through these “taste changes”?
