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.

I suppose one or two now and then would be a way to get started, but I'm not even sure every book by some of my favorite authors is available digitally. I did get Herriott's All Creatures Great and Small, All Things Bright and Beautiful, and All Things Wise and Wonderful in one volume not long ago, but I remember wondering when I reread them there if they were inclusive and never got around to comparing them to the paper copies. I will before I dispose of the paper versions. I also got a digital copy of Josephine Tey's Brat Farrar a while back, but that was because my paperback copy had gotten to where I had an elastic band around it to keep the pages in.
