You can overcome the anxiety clutter brings

Since I was young, I’ve loved to read. At home I have a six-foot wide, floor-to-ceiling shelf overflowing with books. As an adult, however, reading for pleasure has become one more thing vying for my time and it often doesn’t get the attention it deserves.

In step audio books.

A few years ago, I discovered Overdrive — the electronic book collection available for free from the state library through the local library. Here, you can check out digital books as well as audio books. If you like ebooks or listening to audio books, definitely check out Overdrive by asking at your local library. I like audio books so well because I can listen while doing chores or traveling.

One drawback of Overdrive is, just like a physical library, there are only so many copies of a title available. There can often be a long wait list for the book you want. So, to pass the time when this happens to me, I branch out from any usual genre. That’s how I came to listen to The Hoarder in You, How to Live a Happier, Healthier, Uncluttered Life by Dr. Robin Zasio.
