I have too many books.
Bricks for the eye, a friend of mine used to call them.
I have vowed never to get rid of books when I move because they are what makes my house look like a home.
Tell me about it. Still trying to figure out which books to leave in Houston and the essentials to bring to SF.
My sympathies. If you figure out what to do, let me know.
Not to make it more difficult, and you gotta live in the here and now, and for today, I know, but think about twenty or twenty-five years down the road. For me, it has become really really hard to collect and keep books, even those that I really really love. Think of the number of linear feet of shelf space needed, year after year, ever increasing, and the upkeep in terms of avoidng damage from dust, damp, and/or sun.
I wish I had an answer.
Well, I don’t have enough books…so….
I didn’t realize this was even possible.
and yet…and yet
Such a thing is not possible.
ah… they’re just such a pain to move. i’ve thought about renting a storage space or some small office and establishing a closed-stacks library there, just so that if/when i move around more in charlottesville my library will always be in the same place.
anyway, i am getting rid of furniture before getting rid of books. there is not enough room for everything, but i would rather sit on the floor surrounded by books.
