I've noticed the large buildup too. Except hadn't thought about it as I
don't have a time limit set (entry of transactions sporadic so could
require a long period between).
However -- I do have a suggestion for making the deletion easier.
You have your books in a directory dedicated to that purpose. The
backups get placed there too. When you decide too many, just copy the
books and the last X pairs of backups (whatever you decide enough for
safety) into another directory, delete the first directory and all it's
contents, reallocate it, and move what you copied back. It's what I do
if I have many tens of pairs to delete.
