Spring Clean #11 Five More Books

This is the next group of books set aside for donation. They were all informative and I have fond memories of them. Even Johnson’s book, which I consider propaganda at least made me think. I meant to get back to this sooner, but a bout of pneumonia waylaid me. The final decision on the JeffreyContinue reading “Spring Clean #11 Five More Books”

Spring Clean #10 Five More Books

This is the tenth group of books I’m getting ready to drop off for donation. With this group gone, my second shelf is cleared—“cleared” being a relative term, of course.

This is the next group of books set aside to be donated in my spring clean. Happily, two of these are going to a woman in critique group I’m a member of. So nice to see books go to a happy home.

Spring Clean #8 Five More Books

This is my next installment of spring cleaning and saying goodbye to five more books. I look forward to cleaning off a second shelf—so I can fill it up again. I don’t have to go shopping or anything.

Spring Clean #7 Five More Books

This is my next group of books to be donated to the library. Reading these over for writing these posts brings back a lot of memories.

Spring Clean Part #6 Five More Books

This is my next round of cleaning out my books for donation. Posting about them is my way of saying goodbye. Nothing as exciting as clearing off a shelf, but I have more clear space to put the books that are clogging up nightstands and end tables.

Spring Clean #5 Five More Books

This is my next donation of books and an achievement of sorts. I clear off my first shelf—at least for a little while. It will soon be full of books I have lying around the house. But savor the victory for the moment. History and Documentation of Human Rights in Iran (2000) by Shirin EbadiContinue reading “Spring Clean #5 Five More Books”

Spring Clean #4 Five More Books

Spring cleaning continues with the fourth donation run set for next Tuesday of the following five books. It’s my way of saying goodbye to books I read a while ago. Most of them I loved.

Spring Clean #3 Five More Books

The spring cleaning continues. I say goodbye to five more books. They’ll be donated to the local library on Tuesday. As before, there is no theme with these books. They were arranged alphabetically and they’re going to the library alphabetically.
