You may think of spring cleaning as something that only applies to your wardrobe and the hard-to-reach dusty corners of your apartment. But even if you’re working on creating a library as majestic as the one in Beauty and the Beast, your bookshelf can probably still use a spring freshen-up.
I don’t want to get rid of my books, you’re probably thinking. I love each and every one of them dearly! And I completely understand. I’ve never been a collector and I don’t like clutter, but books are my one exception. I’ll pile them up in corners, stack as many on possible on my bookshelf, and basically stash the rest anywhere I can find some free space. Of course, this is the reason why even the most passionate of book-lovers should occasionally clean their shelves. You can't keep buying books and not give a few away.
Not only will spring cleaning allow you free up space for buying more books, but you can also give away some gently used books so that others can enjoy them. Even if you think your shelf is perfect even when cluttered, spring cleaning can be a great refresher. Here are some ways you can spring clean your bookshelf, but still build your beautiful Beauty and the Beast-esque library.
