Well, it’s January in California, and to all you people in the Midwest and East Coast, that usually means lots of cursing or dreaming of our weather. For the Rose Parade it is usually clear but cold, and that can last throughout the month. But not always, like this week. We went from high 50’s the last two weeks during the day to high 70’s to mid 80’s all this week. Since we only have two seasons (fire and rain), spring cleaning can happen at any time of the year.
Over the holidays, I finally did some clearing. I’ve gone through my manga collection and have started to pull out titles I want to get rid of. As much as I love the idea of having just one room of wall to wall manga, that just isn’t going to happen right now. So, I’ve had to do a lot of soul-searching, and decide what titles I want keep and what titles need to go. I couldn’t let sentimentality get in the way, (though in some cases I think I have). But I thought things over very carefully, and based on re-readability, I have pulled 43 titles from my shelves. It’s come out to be about 135 volumes of manga that I’m going to be getting rid of.
