How Many is Too Many?


With access to things like an Amazon Kindle, storage space for books is not so difficult to manage as it once was. But at what point is your Kindle Library "too big"?


I'm sure all book-lovers have run into this problem at least once - where they look at their ebook library and realize that they actually own more books than they could possibly have time to read.

Now, more or less all of the ebooks I own I got for free - either they're classics that were public domain or they were on sale through Freebooksy or some other site. If I had spent money on these books, this might be more of a concern for me.

That said... I do already have many more books than I will ever have time to read.

So... what do I do at this point? Do I try to thin my virtual library so it's easier to sort out the ones I want to/have the time to read? Or do I leave it as is and trust that I'll be able to remember the title of the one book I was interested in once I finish whatever my current project is?

I don't even know anymore.

Is there a right way to do this?

Where is my moral compass for book-hoarding?

Does the sun even rise in the east anymore?

WHAT IS THE MEANING OF MY LIFE IN THIS VAST LIBRARY OF EXISTENCE???

Ahem.

Right.

I'd love to hear your feedback. This is obviously something that's been on my mind for a while, and I think you intelligent folks probably have some thoughts where I only have questions.

Until next week, stay warm, stay dry, and stay safe, Inklings.
