De-cluttering---Old Bible Studies????

I'm clearing out my bookshelves and I was wondering what you do with Bible Studies and workbooks that you have done in the past? I've done a zillion it seems, according to the number I have, LOL! Many are duplicates because both my husband and I attended, so we have 2 workbooks on many of them. We've done seminars that have caused us to buy hardcover books as well. I got a lot out of them at the time, but it's not the sort that you'd go back thru (obviously, I haven't...). So what do you do with them? Such a waste, but I need the space. It's not like you can pass them on with your personal info in them.

  • Unless they have a particular meaning to you, I would toss them. I have a Beth Moore "Breaking Free" study book that is very important to me. I wrote almost another book in the margins of it.

  • I would throw everything out too... I could also see keeping something like "breaking free" if it is meaningful. That one has a lot of info and interpretations- I don't agree with all of hers, but it has its own value as a book to refer back to IYSWIM
