Spring Cleaning and Streamlining Shelves

What do The Scarlet Letter, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, and my Introduction to Microeconomics textbook all have in common? They (and all my other books) are all taking up way too much space in my apartment! If your literary library is swallowing your home’s square footage, how do you decide what books to keep and which to give away? If only there was a way to keep all my books and still reclaim all that space…

Before I get rid of anything, I ask myself a simple question—When is the last time I even used this?
