Purging Books (Again)

We've purged about 1,550 books out of 4,200, which is 37%. Not bad. We're down to two double-stacked Ivars for the regular size paperback fiction, one single-stacked Ivar for non-fiction and outsize books, six Billies for trade paperback/hardback fiction and one Billy for graphic novels. So we've cleared three Ivars (which will be going, to make room for a desk in the spare bedroom), and sorted out the overflowing Billies to the extent that there's now a spare shelf.

The books themselves are still cluttering up the spare bed, but we hope to get them out of the flat within a couple of weeks. Delicious Library thinks that eight of them have some significant value, and they're up for sale on Amazon Marketplace (half of them are Economist yearbooks from the late 90s, which seem to be surprisingly valuable).
