A meme from Booking Through Thursday.
Today’s topic is “My best friend is moving across country, heading back to the East Coast for the first time after years of living in California, and one of the things she’s lamented was the whole packing-the-books thing. Having moved a few years ago myself (whittling down my 3000-volume library to 2000-volumes and still ending up with something like 50 boxes of books), I sympathize.
So … the question is–what kind of moving experiences have you had with your books? (Or, just in general if you’ve got good Moving Day stories–and who doesn’t?) Did having to pack and move your books cause any changes in your book-collecting habits? Make you wish you had everything on an e-reader? Feel free to discuss! (grin)”
This topic came just before my move though I didn’t get around to it until after… Moving my books was not as bad as anticipated. There were quite a few boxes but I was okay with mixing them up to make them fit well. Though that must come with the confession that right now there is very little organization to them. Partially because many of my books still live at my parent’s house. That will be the true adventure. Right now I am trying to design bookshelves for the new house so that all of those books can eventually come here. Will some just come make built ins for my whole office?
