Minimalism and Kindle Unlimited

I've been thinking in terms of minimalism the last few years. I'm not an overnight convert! But, over the last few years I've slowly been getting rid of old books. These days I read almost exclusively from the Kindle Unlimited program at Amazon. About the only paperback books buy these days are related to my learning another language. I still go to a local used book store from time to time. But, I tend to bring the books back rather than keep them around.

I didn't find selling any of my books helpful at all. The last time I gathered up some of books in great shape, the place offered me $1. I took it, so it could pay for 1/2 of the gasoline it took me to drive to their bookstore. I don't have enough books to worry about trying to make money selling them. I just give books to the library and let them sell them. It's my way of giving a little something back to the community.
