I am registering all my books. This will result in a significant permanent collection because I have a lot of non fiction books reflecting my current interests, to which I refer frequently. There are a few texts that relate to my MA studies; these are out of print so I feel a need to hang on to them (until I overcome my sentimental attachment to them anyway). As my permanent collection will change with my interests the books will all be registered and ready to go when I no longer need them. I am conscious that my library will outlive me and so this is also by way of preparation for the day when someone has to decide what to do with all my books.
My interests include gardening and horticulture, cookery, patchwork and quilting and dancing (Line dancing and Ballroom and Latin American).
I buy a lot of fiction which I read and wild release. I spent many years with shelves full of books that I could not part with for one reason or another. I feel differently now: there is a great freedom in 'letting go'. I have decided that when a fiction/literature book is in my permanent collection I will continue to purchase additional copies when I can to Bookcross in some way.
