A friend of mine at work knew I liked reading house books, so she gave me House Detox by Sara Burford. House Detox is a really fast read (it's under 100 pages). It's divided into 8 sections (Make a Start, Entrance Hall, Lounge, Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, Garage, and Index); it's got a ring binding, and each of those sections is a tab, so they're very easy to locate within the book.
I do wish the book went into more detail on a lot of the tips. For example, it said that house plants should not be kept in the bedroom, but offered no reason why.
Overall, I thought this book was a great read for anyone new to the idea of decluttering. It has a lot of great info on how to get started, and about how to plan your declutter so you don't get overwhelmed. Unfortunately it didn't go into enough detail for anyone who needs a little more out of their decluttering journey.
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
