In case you haven't heard, organizing consultant (yes, that's a thing) Marie Kondo has a new Netflix show about tidying up and basically getting your life together. It's a noble effort to be sure, but it's already causing some controversy. 

The central component of Kondo's method is to get rid of anything that "doesn't bring you joy." Of course, that's a broad sentiment that's open to interpretation. And when she came for people's books (!!!), well, let's put it this way: Outrage quickly ensued. 

Twitter was set ablaze with folks refusing to toss their beloved personal libraries, and the commentary is admittedly pretty hilarious.

Meet Marie Kondo, the Japanese organizing consultant who is all about making your home (and life) as tidy as possible.

She literally wrote the book on living your most put-together life. It's called The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing.

And now she even has a Netflix show that's basically her giving decluttering makeovers to people who need to seriously let some stuff go.

The show premiered on New Year's Day, and she's already inspiring the masses.

Look at all this decluttering!


But not everyone is loving Kondo's bring-me-joy-or-get-tossed philosophy, especially when it comes to their precious books.

This person said that they "don’t trust someone who doesn’t understand the magic of books." (Oooh, the shade of it all.)

Others believe in Kondo's method... just not when it's applied to books.

And then there was this great point about buying books to support writers, but not holding onto them because their beauty needs to get passed along.

Apparently Kondo casually mentioned that some people might feel differently about letting go of books.

But that didn't really appear to make people feel any better.

Also off-limits? Art and plants, according to one Twitter user.

I guess we'll all just have to agree to disagree on this one.
