Recently I was listening to a National Association of Professional Organizers’ conference presentation by Debbie Bowie about using feng shui in the organizing process. Whether you believe in the validity of this ancient Eastern practice or not, there are definitely some good ideas that came from this talk. One of the things Debbie spoke about was items in your home having static energy, meaning they don't add anything good to the life of your home or to your life in general. One group of the items she discussed as a static force in the home was books. Now books tend to be one of my vices. I like to collect them and I love to go to used book sales but currently I am trying to cut back on the actual physical books that are in my house. As a result I have taken to reading a lot of books on my iPad.
