Oddball: Book Control

So...for those who have seen the slide show that is my bookshelves, you can find it here. So all the books in those pics plus a stack of books for review, a stack to be put away and stacks all over the floor and the coffee table to sort into the put away, catalog, or review piles. I don't know what to do, my books are taking over my whole library (not even in the good organized way) and I don't what to do with them all.

What do you all think? Here are some of the things I do with some of them....
1. Send them to my deployed friends
2. Paperbackswap
3. Half.com for some of the newer ones I wont ever read again

So what else should I be doing with these books, I want to just get an ebook copy of each (I have a TON of ebooks as well and converting all to ebook is crazy expensive) and then give away or sell everything else.

The main problem is I can't concentrate when books are everywhere and everything is disorganized and that doesn't work for me.

Leave me a comment tell me what you think, or would do...

  2. Donating to the library is a brilliant idea. One thing I do is booksforsoldiers.com...you can send plenty of books overseas, and truly, they appreciate it :)

  3. I know it's hard but I would recommend donating them to charity. I developed a system, if the book was below a certain rating system then I give it away. There is no point keeping books that you'll never read. I'm like you I let the book clutter build up and then I can't stand it.

    Good luck with whatever you decide to do!

  4. Good ideas from the three previous comments. But why don't you send a third to your battle buddy's, donate a third to the library, the remainding third send to charity. That way they all benifit.
