Are books clutter?

Organizing consultant Marie Kondo is under fire for suggesting people throw away their books. Kondo is the star of Netflix's "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo." The show follows Kondo as she helps tidy up messy homes and preaches the "KonMari method," a style of cleaning that involves eliminating items that no longer bring you joy. Kondo suggests you keep no more than 30 books and Twitter went wild. Can we ever have too many books?

Some argue that books are important to have because they serve you at different points in your life. Twitter users say they are suspicious of anyone who suggests they throw knowledge out of the window.

But on the other hand, books literally, collect dust. If you are trying to live minimally, books can clutter up your living space. Today, we have e-books and Kindles, so it isn't really necessary to hold onto too many books.
