I've been dithering a bit in finishing off the review of my bookshelves, which also contain part of my DVD collection. A great part of my hesitation is actually about whether or not to make the list public.
I sort of want to have a record of what I'm letting go of, to see the scale of possessions which I'm letting go of. I sort of want it to be public, and it's harder to articulate why. Partly, I'd like to sell or give away a bunch of stuff. Easier to advertise when it's all in one place. But on the other hand, I feel like it's egocentric, or showing off, or ... I'm not sure what. I don't fully trust my motivations.
When in doubt, pick something and get on with it. I'm publishing the list here. It will keep growing as I keep reviewing and culling stuff.
I don't often invite comment on what I write (though comments are always welcome), but tonight I will. I'm curious how people see a list like this: am I egocentric, or honest, or brave, or greedy, or something else? Am I thinking about it too hard and people don't really care what I do? If you have a moment, kind reader, I'd appreciate hearing from you.
