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.
If you’re contemplating a similar purge of your own home library to make room for whatever books you purchase over the next decade, you might want to ponder the advice offered in Books You Can Live Without…including the suggestions and warnings submitted by over 300 (!) readers who responded to this blogpost.
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.
