existentially important question  

And lo, so came the day when she faced the question that in time must come to all who walk these halls:

What should I do with the signed & personalized books I don’t expect to re-read? I’ve gotten very hard-hearted about keeping books, because they take up so much space and are so much of a pain to move, and because I don’t read, much less re-read, very much anymore. (*snivel* Also, this is why I want an e-reader.) But the question of signed copies, well. That becomes a difficult one. *frowns thoughtfully at the shelves*

(Don’t be silly, I’m keeping *yours*, of course.)

I keep most books. I do tend to have up to 3 copies of books or series I enjoy so I can hand them out to friends. *chuckle* one reason we tend to have a library room wherever we live, as well as bookshelves in EVERY room of the house.

Signed books are kept in one shelf.

It does make it a pain to move, but then I have done it so much now that I am used to it.

If you are low on space or tired of having the books around (shudder) then why not keep the few that mean a lot to you and sell or give away the others?
