I’ve been trimming down every useless thing since a year, be it cds, dvds, LPs, books, magazines, clothes and trying to reach an uncluttered life. When I finished the elimination of unwanted books, I figured it’d be much more better to turn the remaining books over on the shelves and just mark the writers most important with a bookmark or “shelfmark”. What do you think about the new look of the bookshelves? Your opinions shall lead me. 

read minimal, gain optimum

My present way of thinking, altough I’m no way getting blind, now can clearly come to the conclusion that Borges has slowly turned into a minimist due to his veiling blindness. He chose to stick with his best authors’ best works, tried to memorize quite vast amounts of literature, indeed managed to and after becoming completely blind he asked his wife to read him the books he chosed beforehand and memorized the most important pieces over and over again. When he died I assume one of the most complete libraries ever cretated in human memory has diminished. In some of his stories one can find the same suggestion that “it’s not important to read many books, it’s important to re-read  the books chosen”. Now, I’m constantly trimming down my library and slowly in the process of reading the chosen.
