Books VS Kindle

As we reduce clutter I find it very difficult to get rid of many of my hard cover and soft cover books. I love to download books to my kindle due to the convenience of having access to my complete library right in the palm of my hands. I expecially like to read a book right on my cell phone.

The delemna is that there is a certain romance that I associate with having a visual library. Most of these books sit on a shelf and never get touched and I like to place them there to use as a reference if I need it. But the truth is that they very rarily get referenced and it would be ealier to bookmark a subject of that book in a kindle.

I know I could certaily clear up a lot more space. But there is a small sense of distrust in believing that my books will always be accessable from the kindle library. I know that this is pretty silly and I also know deep down inside that I really don’t want a collection of books sitting on a shelf.

As I strive towards living a simpler life I have to remember that one day if I make that move to a much smaller house, (which I do see in my future) that collection of books will have to go.
