Hints for Purging Your Home Library

Several booklovers were recently invited to post to Paper Cuts, a blog maintained by the New York Times, what they learned from trimming down the contents of their personal libraries.

Readers in search of passionately recommended titles will also find plenty of them here: i.e., Books Various Readers Claim They Can’t Live Without.
