We're moving to a smaller apartment and decided we had to cull our library. In the end, we decided to part with more than 700 books (and trust me, we're still swimming in books!). We sold most of my wife's grad school reading (about 200 books), and got friends to adopt another 200. The rest were donated to a variety of places -- some local book clubs, a very avid reader from Freecycle, a literacy group, and a local library. I'm so grateful they're gone, I'm not even sad any more about the cull!
