Tidiness queen Marie Kondo doesn’t want you to get rid of all your books.

Kondo sent the Twitterverse into a tizzy with her new Netflix series “Tidying Up With Marie Kondo” after viewers interpreted her pare-down advice to mean a life without books.

Her KonMari method of organizing in the show and her bestselling book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing, asks people to tackle categories of objects, in order — clothing, books, paper, “kimono” (kitchen/bath/miscellany) and sentimental items — and ditch those things that don’t “spark joy.”

“Books are the reflection of our thoughts and values, so by tidying books, it will show you what kind of information is important to you at this moment,” she says on the series, encouraging clients to throw away the ones that don’t bring happiness and keep only those they want to “take into the future.”

However, Kondo elaborates on her methods to IndieWire, suggesting that while a collection of just 30 books is the perfect amount for her, it might not be the same for you.

“The most important part of this process of tidying is to always think about what you have and about the discovery of your sense of value, what you value that is important. So it’s not so much what I personally think about books,” Kondo says via an interpreter, noting Japan’s humid climate damages books, unlike a North American climate.

“The question you should be asking is, What do you think about books. If the image of someone getting rid of books or having only a few books makes you angry, that should tell you how passionate you are about books, what’s clearly so important in your life. If that riles you up, that tells you something you about that. That in itself is a very important benefit of this process.”

She warns that viewers shouldn’t take the advice she gives in the series to extreme lengths, noting that she doesn’t advocate for the destruction of books or other personal items in the quest to be clutter free.

“I do think there is a misunderstanding of the process, that I’m recommending that we throw away books in the trash or burn them or something,” Kondo adds. “I always recommend donating them, so if that’s part of the misunderstanding, then that’s certainly being mixed up.”
