Retirement Yenta says, rid your bookcases of ‘in order to’ books, i.e., “How to Win Friends & Influence People.” You’ve already made it. Put books on your bookshelf that will interest you in retirement. Some categories you may want to consider: health & wealth, owning a second home, hobbies, travel guides, medical references, and the classics. Although this seems simple, plan on it being an ongoing process. As you buy new books, either old fashioned paper, or on CD, continue to weed, weed, weed. Don’t let your bookcase get too full. Retirement Yenta recommends audio books, they take up much less space. Try Simply Audio Books for your next purchase.
