I finally did it. I unhauled some books from my shelves and donated them.
I’ve been putting off doing this for a while because I am such a book hoarder. I just want to keep all my books. However, I have been running out of shelf space for a while now and my mom has been nagging me about the amount of books I own and the fact that I keep getting book mail. So it was about time I did it.
At first I thought I would be sad after I did it, but I actually feel quite happy and relieved. I’m actually smiling while I’m writing this. Once I started picking books to unhaul, it was so easy to pick more and it felt so good to declutter my shelves.
In total, I unhauled approximately 32 books. I picked books that I know I probably wouldn’t refer back to in the future. What I mean by that is I probably won’t use these books in bookstagram photos, talk about them in my blog, reread them, or reminisce with them. Just because I unhauled a book doesn’t mean that I didn’t like it, it just means that I don’t have a use for them anymore.
Have you ever unhauled books? Tell me about it in the comments!
