And So, It Begins

The packing has officially begun. Two of the big bookshelves are clear of books, and a good ten percent of the living room is devoted to boxes. I'm wondering whether we're going to run out of space; New York apartments weren't designed for easy packing.

It's times like these that I wish I didn't own so many books. I love them as if they were my children (well, small, inanimate, rectangular children), but part of me wishes that I were living out of a suitcase and free as a bird to move without all this, well, stuff tying me down.

Perodically I go through my bookshelves with the intent of paring down, though, and I rarely find more than four or five books I can bear to part with, so I figure getting rid of my collection probably isn't happening.

Which most of my friends agree is a good thing. :)

Oh my lord do I know what you're going through.

Bryn and I still haven't finished shelving the books that I brought from Cambridge. ...and packing books was the first thing that I started doing when I started packing.

I too share in this "malady." The vast majority of my book collection is back in MD, and heaven only knows how I'd get it all up here. I brought the Most Essential (read: Harry Potter and Art) books up...but the others must feel so abandoned... :**(

On that note, if you no longer feel a strong attachment to any of your graphic novels, I devour them like candy. :-D

Hello there. I finally got around to posting on your journal and I was just making sure you were okay. I tried saying hello to you yesterday and you said it was a bad time and you said a polite goodbye. Just making sure that all is well. I have added you as a livejournal friend (for obvious reasons) so if you get bored, feel free to stop and by and say hello. And if you feel the urge to add me too, I would like that very much.

Take care and hope to see you around soon!
