I moved to this home six months ago. I had had many of my possessions in storage for over 11 years (LONG story). Although I had most of my tutoring books with me where I’d lived before here, I didn’t realize how many books I had until I unpacked them.
When I’d toured this house, I was thrilled to see the built in bookshelves next to the fireplace. I was so happy that I wouldn’t need to buy or assemble bookshelves. I was certain that the approximately 15 linear feet of bookshelf space would be more than sufficient for my collection of physics, math, chemistry, space, astronomy, database and software books. Boy, was I wrong!!!!
Here are the books I have not yet unpacked, as I don’t have room to store them.
The question now is, what do I do with all these books I have not yet unpacked? I had to buy a tall bookshelf to store my “recreational reading” books, and I am out of floor space for another bookshelf. What to do, what to do. Bonus round, a dear friend of mine and former physics and astronomy professor offered me her textbook collection recently. Ugh. Is there a 12 Step program for withdrawing from textbook collecting? If not, I might have to start one.
Thanks for reading and have a happy day!!!!!
