In a few months, we're leaving our family home for a smaller yet cozier place in the South. Since our new space has limited room, we've had to do a lot of downsizing and one of our biggest challenges was paring down the books we owned because we all love to read.

After half a day (and hours of emotional struggle), I can safely say that I'm happy with the results as I'm left with only my favorites and titles I know I'll keep going back to. 

If you're also interested in letting your library breathe, here are some things I did that I think can help you, too. Check them out below:
