One of the reasons I love my Kindle is that it has stopped me from accumulating piles of books all over the house. Still, in the years since the K1, I never did the clean out of my bookshelves that I always intended - until this week. My computer room, which is small, has bookshelves on two sides. I want to take out the shelves on the short end of the room, make the room bigger, and keep only those books I use for reference and those I know I will reread. So I started in. Dealing with all those books, dusting, heaving, rearranging.... I've never been one for repurchasing any book for Kindle that I already own in paper, but all I could think of was I wish I had these for Kindle and could just get rid of them all. I've loved books all my life. My own attitude surprises me, but there it is. I have every one of Dick Francis' books sitting on a shelf in a pretty row, and I'd get rid of every one and buy the Kindle version in a minute if it weren't a financial extravagance I can't justify.
