Day 113: Get rid of some books

Any real book lover knows how hard it is to narrow down their collection.  You think you might want to read that great book again sometime or give that one you couldn’t get through just one more chance. I don’t have all that many books but I could certainly give some away to someone who will get more use of them than me.  I’m going to leave them in the waiting room at my office for people to take so there were a few I have kept for now because it would be inappropriate of me to take them to work *cough* fifty shades of grey series *cough* Today I chose five.

Pretty Boy Floyd:  I bought this book when I travelled to Barrie in high school to meet a friend.  I took this trip while my parents were away so I didn’t have to ask permission.  I remember really enjoying the book however I have no intention of ever reading it again.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix: I borrowed the first four books of the series and couldn’t wait to borrow this one so I went out and bought it.  I still have yet to read the last two.  I’m getting rid of this copy because I would really like to own a nice hardcover set of the whole series someday.

The Road:  I wanted to like this book I really did but it was just too descriptive for me and I couldn’t get into it.

You’ve Got to Read This: This is a textbook for an English literature class I took in college and is full of short stories.  While there are many good stories in it, the book is massive and awkward to hold because of it.

A short History of Nearly Everything: I bought this book a few years ago based on a recommendation from someone at work.  I’ve never read it and it is far too sciency for me.  Thanks but no thanks.
