    I did this about 6 months ago too. It was extremely cathartic. It felts soooo good to get rid of it, and what a huge amount of room it made. Now there's enough room for my real theocratic library, where Ray Franz has prime position.
    I did salvage some older books, and have bought some others from ebay...references.
    All those bound volumes, who needs them? I do have 2005 cd from reexamine.


    Woo Hoo Minimus!

    I knew you could do it!!!

    I could have used the magazines before 1950...........Randy could have sold it too, is it too late?

    minimus, those were the evidences!!!!

    Yep, with the move to the new home here in June I threw out nearly all my stuff as well!

    Feels great!

    I rip up watchtowers and awakes but I have about 5 books. Hubby once asked why I kept the books. I told him for evidence. Funny engough 3 of them are geared towards children - my kids have shown no interest.



    Good for you Mini. After the Watchtower Library CDROMS started coming out...1993? 1995? I stopped getting the bound volumes, stopped collecting the stupid Km's and the last time I moved I packed the WT books up and now they are in the attic collecting dust. I wish I kept that stupid Revelation Climax book out though, never thought we'd be studying that again!

    I hope you shredded it first, so no unsuspecting person can read it and get duped by the wts crap. We don't want to see a future wt article about someone finding the lie through a mag they found in the trash.

    I'll bet it was a relief to see it go, I know it was for me when I got rid of mine around 5 years ago - I burned the lot, very therapeutic seeing all that crap burn.

    Naw... I say donate them to the U.N.

    Then the WTBTS would need to have a Library Card to go look at them. What a hoot that would be, eh?

    Hi Minimus,

    I too threw out my entire collection of Watchtowers, Awakes, bound volumes, yearbooks, cassettes, videos, everything. I came to the point when I had to make a complete break from the WT mastery over my life. It felt kind of cathartic. I am far past the grieving stage and I now had the opportunity to cut my losses and move on. To hang onto my WT library reminded me daily of the huge mistake that I made when I was so young. Throwing it all away was my way of saying **** *** Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. You can take this library of lies and stuff it where the sun don't shine.

    Mr. Shakita
