|Books flying away (page 63)|
At 128 pages, this is a quick read, and I love the author's drawings. My favorite is the books flying away (shown above). Books and papers are my biggest problem, so it isn't surprising I marked these two quotes:
"I own too many clothes and too many books and I do not need sixteen plates when there is only room for six around my table" (p. 53).
"I only keep books that I still haven't read or books that I keep returning to" (p. 62).
|Old clothes dancing away (page 58)|
"If your family doesn't want your stuff when you're alive, they sure won't want it when you're dead" (from the article).Okay, this is the day. I'm gonna take a couple of boxes of my books to the used bookstore and donate a stack of old clothing (and dishes, since my table has only three chairs). Fly away to new homes, books! Find yourselves someone new to wear you, clothes!
