Today's weeding without reading:
The Communist Manifesto, Huxley's Doors of Perception, and Laing's Politics of Experience and The Bird of Paradise.

I think I found Dad's college era...

there's a couple politics books about actual politics, but they'd be so massively out of date now, I'm not going to bother, even if one does say it's a classic. if it's that classic it'll be in penguin paperback still, and probably on archive.org a lot.

The handwriting book can also go. If I want to write fancy I'll install a fancy font.



I did find two (2) books that were definitely Dad's side Grandma's, with her name in from when she was younger. They're about a hundred years old and just about holding together, definitely well read. I won't get rid of them, but they're not reading copies if I want to keep them as objects. Still, hundred year old books I've vaguely heard of will be around somewhere.



Book weeding is weirdly weighty. Like, if it's just stuff I bought, it might remind me of the 90s or the last time I read it or something, but if it's from the inherited set, it's like meeting ancestors again unexpectedly. And then judging their libraries.

I can't keep all the books I inherited, I own two thousand books even after giving up on entire authors, I'll never read all these fact pile sort even if I keep them.

... that is so much easier to decide than to do.



but, slow and steady...
