As I sort through countless books, I wonder at the weightlessness that accompanies a good purging of material things. I am a certifiable, verifiable bibliophile, yet even I enjoy gaining shelf space and losing the weight of books that will no longer be needed or used in our home. I'm not ready to rid our home of all books - or even, in reality, all that high of a percentage of books. However, the books we have released from captivity set my soul free. There are 6 large boxes full of books going to new homes. I feel like I can breathe when I look in the schoolroom, now.
