I feel like I am no longer a collector of books, which made me kind of sad this afternoon when I came across a tiny collection of lovely antique books on a blog I love.
When I was in college, I'd bring home new old books on a weekly basis and treasure them dearly. I'd actually show them off to friends when they came over to visit. But moving from Ohio to Illinois to Washington meant letting a few of those books go along the way.
I still have lots of books I love, but at one point during packing I had to start asking myself "Am I actually going to read this?"
I guess that's not really the point of collecting, and I have a handful of books that are even too fragile to read, but it was a practical decision. Especially since I now live in a small one bedroom apartment with my boyfriend and cat.
Have you left books behind that you reminisce over? Am I just crazy? Please share.
