How is decluttering the shelves going?

This is definately going to be a two week project. So far I have completed three bookshelves - 2 in the guest room and 1 in the study.  I decided to move all reference books into the study and then arrange the other books we decided to keep in the guest room.  I added objects that make it more decorative, hung a picture next to the study bookshelf and it all looks better.  We donated  42 books, 3 office supply items, and 4 toys.

Below are before and after pictures of the two bookshelves in the guest room and the one in the study.  I like them better now and am glad to be rid of that much stuff!  Next week will be about tweaking the rest of the shelves in the house - mostly cleaning with a bit or rearranging and hopefully a bit of decluttering.
