Geeky life seems lend itself to the accumulation of things, many many things, at least in my case anyway. But the time has come for me to cull the excess, a process that is highly emotional and time intensive. For the past few months I have endeavored to cut down on the items that I really no longer need nor will use in the future. Tricky to pick, but space must be made, you know for all the new stuff!
My manga collection recently went through the ringer. However much I love them, I just can’t justify keeping books I wont be reading anymore. So I cut down the collection by almost 200 books. This is them all stacked up:
While I have convinced myself its time to let go, I can’t do it without reading them all first. Which is what I have been doing, binging on manga. Trying to read them all before I pass them onward.
I’m about two thirds through the stack. So far I’m pretty happy with my to cut selection, have not had any second thoughts. Plus I’ve been inspired to find some new fun books to start taking up all that available free space. =P
