Sweet Merciful Crap!  
I've always known I had a lot of books. Heck, I've been working at a bookstore for years, which only feeds my desire and ability to purchase far more books than I need.

I thought I was doing pretty well, though. We gave a few boxes worth to the library, and I sold six shopping bagsful back to my store.

How is it, then, that I have twelve large boxes of books sitting in my hallway? I've not even finished boxing the contents of the living room or office bookshelves, nor touched my cookbooks. AND there are at least half a dozen boxes in the basement.

Have I mentioned the house we're moving into is wee?

Oh, woe, alas! What am I to do?

"Hey Don, here's an idea: let's not get a new sofa. Let's just stack books creatively and add a few throw pillows. Yes?"

You're worse than my family! My family has more boxes, but at least ours are stock for FDB!

Build lots and lots of tall shelves so you can get a bunch of them in one place... uh huh... just don't let the materials fall on you, they hurt... sigh.

You invite Foo to come visit and to take away boxes of books. Yup. =P

An excellent plan! As it is, there are a few folk who should be expecting parcels from me in the near future. Oh yes indeedy!

Whenever you want to send me some boxes of books to NY, I'll take them! ;)

I just may do so. :D

I'm actually moving to NY state. Woo-hoo, lower car insurance!

Lower car insurance... Yeah... Well, I am glad you have a good sense of humor... :)
And you'd have my thanks for books... ;)

Well, I'm moving from New Jersey, which has abysmally high insurance rates. meh.

If you want books, I really am more than happy to send some your way. I think I have a good idea of what you like. Feel free to email me your addy (joustgal@optonline.net).
