Minimalism as a booklover

June 2, 2017

Hello cupcakes!

Here's some news: I've been really into minimalism lately. Although I'm far from being an expert, I've found that getting rid of old clothes and trying to keep only the essentials in every aspect of my life makes me feel at peace, calm, and simply happy. 
A big step I wasn't ready to take yet was tackling my bookshelves. 

To give you an idea, until a week ago, I owned over 500 books, which amounts to a wall of books or, to put it simply, a hell of a lot of books! I absolutely loved going back to my room and seeing all of them lined up on shelves. The time I felt the most at home was when I was with my books. 

Let me share with you a little story that might sound familiar to you:

There once was a little who loved words. She liked reading them, she liked writing them, and she wanted them all around her. He dream house had a room dedicated to words, a personal library that would contain all the books in the world. She swore to herself that one day that dream would come true. The end.

I'm that little girl. You're that little girl. Most of us book lovers are that little girl! 

Until suddenly, I wasn't that little girl anymore. 
Which is when I came to the conclusion that some of my precious books had to go. I decided that I would, to the best of my abilities, be a minimalist book lover.

How do I plan on doing that? Good question, here is my answer!
