books I don't like, but my tastes have changed drastically over the years. I may like it later in life. That happens to me all the time.
I didn't keep them because of space considerations, mostly. Nowadays, though, with e-books, I'm less likely to purge books; I have to actively hate the book (and anyway, it's still in my bookstore account, even if I delete it).
How do you know you like the book later in life unless you reread it and find out???
