The Great Book Sort

Ok so as mentioned yesterday was the day of the great book sort, now when I said that I had boxes and boxes of books to sort out some people might have disbelieved. Well it started with these and these...



... And carried on with more in these and these...



... Which ended up looking something like this at 1 o'clock this morning...


So I have quite a lot of sorting left to go frankly. I have made an excel spreadsheet now so I know where every book is! Yes I am that much of a book geek, its wrong isnt it! I have 647 books I am keeping which the Non Reader says is excessive! Pah! Now a question for you all, what do you do with books you dont want? Charity, eBay, Amazon, what? I did do readitswapit but the book pile merely stays at the same level and never goes down! Recommendations please!

So you're keeping 647 books. But there's so many details that you didn't reveal. What's the proportion of read:unread? How many did you discard?

I too have a non-reader in the house. He's long surrendered to my OCD ...

Oh lord, it really is book craziness there! Have you come to a solution yet?

Oh Lizzie I didnt think to do that ratio thank you for the idea! It is actually 140 read and 507 not read and delightfully I have had another 31 arrive with more due today, its getting out of control.

As to what to do with the others Novel Insights... I am still at a loss!
