I'm thinking of selling most of my books. Have you done something similar? Do you regret it?

I'm going to be moving soon and am thinking of really paring down my personal library rather than moving it all. I'd hold onto reference books, some major classics (trying to choose just one edition of each), and some hardback poetry. Aside from that, I'd try to select about two dozen recently-purchased books I can see myself possibly reading in the next year or two. Everything else I'd take in to used bookstores. Whatever they're not willing to buy I'd dispose of. Will I regret this?
