We did a dead tree sweep a few years ago to reduce our dead tree shelving by half. What I realized about the magazines is that I never really used them. I used their website at the time, and the magazines were much less user friendly. I've let that lapse, and have the few real 'keepers' in my recipe app. I now have most of my cookbooks in dead tree format, and use eatyourbooks.com to find the recipes. This is a great arrangement. I supplement it with web searches, often with 'serious eats' thrown in to the search term :)

Going to do another sweep again soon, reduce it by even more. The number of works of fiction I am willing to re-read is very very low (With so many great books out there I haven't read, I am loathe to read one twice, same thing for movies), the last bits of fiction will go. Along with the few remaining professional books I hold on to without good reason. Soon, it will almost exclusively be art books, cookbooks and maybe some woodworking books.

I am getting rid of all my paper copies as well. I always go online. Some magazines offer digital and print for the same price. I still enjoy paging through magazines, but now they go in the recycle as soon as I am finished. I just boxed the last too years of FC, C@H, BA, FN, and F&W. I stopped subscribing the print CI a few years back. Those issues along with the back issues of all the others will get boxed within the next few weeks I hope. Hoping Friends of the Library will want them for their book sale, but if not I'll recycle. Cookbooks going the same way as soon as I get my new bookcase which is way smaller.

JB,

Apparently nobody else wants them, so PM me your address. I'll give you a shipping total when I have it; that much is likely to be less than $15 to ship.

When I moved a couple of years ago, I had many, many years of collected Bon Apetits. I listed them on Craig's list for free and got one response. One is all you need! I don't know what his plans were for them, but at least I got rid of them. Now I, too, have all my old CIs that I should deal with.

Freecycle.org is where I list everything I don't want.
