So Many Books, So Little Space

"I remember sitting in our much smaller flat, which could not accommodate even one of our largest bookcases, surrounded by boxes of books and wondering what we had been thinking." Alina Tugend faces an all-too-familiar problem -- so many books, so little space -- and then tries to find the best way to dispose of the ones she doesn't want: used bookstores, libraries and the Internet.


  • Every six months, I haul out the books I know I'll never re-read, and give them to my colleagues.

  • I did try Book Crossing, but it doesn't work in this country. Some kind soul always comes hurrying up with the book you left behind.
