RIDing the RID. 2011 – Books on belief.
So, in order to accomplish the RID project, I would typically…figure out what item I wanted to get RID of, think about the item a little, take a picture of it, then…sometime later…create the entry about it to share with … Continue reading
December – The origin of books I own.
As I prepare for my move to NYC, I continue giving away a lot of books. I have a hard time going into a bookstore without coming out with one (or several). One of the unexpected benefits of the RID … Continue reading
December – Movement.
Today, I RID these books about movement. And it seems proper to announce my own. As many of you may have already figured out by my appearance in yesterday’s New York Times, I’m moving again…this time to New York. I’ll … Continue reading

August 16, 2011 – Compassion.
One of the recurring things about the RID project is that it’s upped my compassion factor. What other people need. What other people might find important. Or necessary. Or useful. So, today I RID this book about compassion – and … Continue reading
July 16, 2011 – Glued to the set.
This book, about the TV shows that shifted American culture, was a good enough skim/read. But today, as I RID it, I think about not just RIDding the book, but maybe how much television I watch as well. One of … Continue reading
July 14, 2011 – Flagwavering.
This is the kind of book I used to purchase that made the RID project so good for me. It’s a sociological study of where people display American flags, and what the symbolism means. A fascinating topic, if you ask … Continue reading
