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.)

Going to so many autographing with several (or many) authors, I ended up with tons of them. Those from close friends ended up in a box in the attic and have been there for so many years they are probably brittle and falling apart and ready for the bin, anyway.

The others, I tore the autographed page out of them and gave them to charity. I couldn't stand the thought that the authors would run across them and realize I had given them away (from the autograph) so I just took them out.
