Yeah, Bikermommy, you should try reading sometimes! Reading Is Fundamental. And oh yes. A library would be ideal. We're the same way, Gullyborg. We subscribe to the fundamental fact of life that you never ever get rid of books and guns. Once upon a time, I did sell a bunch of textbooks and Danielle Steel novels to Half Price Books. But I was in dire need of money and space in my 600 sq. ft. apartment. Oh, and I took a class called "Multi-Cultural World Literature." Toni Morrison, Gloria Naylor, etc. Wow, what tripe. And I was sitting there the whole time thinking, when are we going to study WORLD authors instead of crappy American authors? Just because they're black, Mexican, or Chinese (all American) doesn't mean they're good. And I want to read the classics, too. I just have to get through my Harry Potter addiction first. Jack Deth, we have so many boxes of books in storage. Tammi, I totally agree. I just love my labels. "Compulsory stupid reading." CTG, I have an inventory, color-coded boxes, Excel spreadsheet, all that.

The Gullybabe and I are the sort who NEVER get rid of books once we have them - but even we have placed our one Toni Morrison book (which was compulsory stupid reading for a stupid pinkytoe "womyns issues" class I was REQUIRED to take to graduate) into our recycle pile. Never in my life have I read such inane drivel - and it won a Nobel Prize. I will make it a point to avoid reading any future Nobel Prize winning literature. I have decided I am going to focus on reading the classics - by which I mean the TRUE classics, as in, things that have stood the test of time for centuries - and try to get caught up on a few thousand years of profound thought... instead of reading modern books (other than occasional purely fun modern books, like Harry Potter). After all, if it was worth thinking about, people like Plato, Aristotle, St. Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, etc., probably thought about it long before any members of Ivy League literary departments were born.

Hi, SarahK: Minerva knows it. Sydney knows it. Rowdie and FrankJ... Not so much. SarahK is so smrt! If I had to tear down my book case, I'd have many more boxes for books than for clothes and DVDs. Jack.

SarahK, I didn't think there was any other way to do it! You're exactly, perfectly correct regarding the manner in which you are packing... :-)

my boxes were like that too! And because we were paying people to haul them, you can bet I had an inventory of every book that was in every box. The other stuff, not so much, but I was worried about the books.

Not dorky because of the organization. Dorky because of the way I label the details. "Compulsory stupid reading." And the ALIAS mags had to go in... We have no coffee table, and the bookcases are full.

Since when is being organized dorky? On the other hand I CAN'T BELIEVE you would pack the Alias magazines first!
