We're purging books! (Hallelujah!) A big part of this has been Elayna going through her shelves and pulling things that she has moved beyond or things she never liked. In some cases, things she has inherited from me.
Me: "Oh, this was mine when I was little!"
Elayna: "Yeah I know. I can tell because it's about ballet."
Me, surveying the books: "...huh."
Elayna: "Ballet and horses."
She tries to put Gypsy and Nimblefoot in the donation pile, and I seize it from her.
Me: "This is the first book that made me cry!"
Elayna: "Seriously, though, what is it with the all the horse books? 'Oh, I'm a preteen coming of age! I need to figure out who I really am! I'll go ride a horse!'"
I glared. But she's pretty much right.
