What about books? The past few years I have been nearly ruthless when it comes to purging them. I regularly give books to friends -- even sending them cross-country -- and have you heard of Book Crossing? I've only kept books received as gifts that I haven't read yet, which is already at least two boxes. And I have all but replaced trips to bookstores with walks to the library during lunch breaks.
The other day I was tidying up the garage and came across a box full of books. They are from DC's and his brother's childhood days. Here are a few that I just had to bring out, to sit with and flip through slowly:

[richard scarry cover]
These are intended for DC's nephew, who's three... but they're here now, for the three-year-old in me to rediscover. (^o^)
