I ask my clients to divide them into four categories:
- General (books you read for pleasure)
- Practical (references, cookbooks, etc.)
- Visual (photographs, collections, etc.)
Once you have piled your books, take them in your hand one by one and decide whether you want to keep or discard each one. The criterion is, of course, whether or not it gives a thrill of pleasure when you touch it. Remember, I said when you touch
it. Make sure you don't start reading it. reading clouds your judgement. Instead of asking yourself what you feel, you'll start asking whether you need that book or not.
