This is the second in a series of posts in the Year of the Purge : A to Z. Every other Sunday, I’ll get rid of something starting with the letter A and working my way to the letter Z by the end of December. This week I’m tackling B.
If you didn’t read the letter A, for my awesome t-shirt, you might enjoy it.
So many B’s to choose from… Beer? Booze? Bermudas? Bad puns? Biological food? Banana hammock?
Choices choices… I’ll go with:
Books I already read and I will most likely never read again
I probably have a truckload and a half of these. From old novels that I just grabbed at some corner convenience store to expensive books I ordered on-line, old university textbooks and outdated computer reference books (learn FrontPage 1.1 anyone?), I will now get rid – i.e. find a place where I can donate them. Hopefully it’ll make some people happy.
Now would be a good time to tell you about my “book mania”. 😉 I have this strange habit of buying 2 copies of each book. One copy to read, dog-ear and carry on the bus, and one copy “to keep in good condition”. I must have three different versions of the Lord of the Rings. More recently, I got the hard cover boxed set of the Twilight Saga, and I’ll probably end up reading the paperbacks instead. Weird huh?
Old Role-Playing Games systems that I don’t use anymore
At one point, had I stacked all my RPG books one on top of the other, I would have had enough book to reach the moon. Well, not really, but it would’ve made a stack almost 12 feet tall. I then got rid of almost all of them, saying I’ll never buy that many RPG manuals again. That’s when Wizards came out with 3.5. I know have close to 6′ of RPG stuff.
It’s time the cycle begins anew. 😉
And just like that, my old useless books are gone.
In two weeks, tYotP will break from it’s regular schedule to make room for a guest post from Karl with a K not a C. So you see, I am somewhat still getting rid of a C. It’s all good really, as I was thinking of getting rid of my coffee addiction, and quite frankly I don’t see this happening anytime soon. I’ll be back with another edition, featurng the letter D on FEB 15th.
