I cleared 50 old books off my shelves last week, including this one, which I was really just keeping because of these notes I’d made.
Digitization is the declutterer’s best friend.
The most important thing is the mark next to each title. It’s the classic, simple teacher cheat: a check minus means I didn’t like it, a check plus means I loved it, a mere check means it was average.
It’s hard to read my scribbled reaction to each story, but that’s OK–it was hard to read them in the actual book, as well.
