This is the number of boxes my dad has brought back into the house from the garage for me to sort. When we went away I cleaned out a bunch of my shelves and closet of books, so the people staying would have room for their things. Now that they're back in the house I have to wonder what I'm going to do with them all. And here I thought I was getting the hang of my room once again. There are just so many textbooks that I can't bring myself to part with. Will I ever really read them again?
So for the most part I've been going through them and pulling out books of interest... but that gets a little grey when I've been accumulating books specifically because they look like they'll be an interesting read.
Trying to save a little of my sanity I've been getting together the books I've been missing since I got back. These are the ones that I've actually reached for before I remembered were packed away. I pulled those out of the boxes first thing and they're already up on my shelves along with my note books and sketch pads. I re-arranged a bunch of shelves and now have a section for my favourite books that are of a specific height... sounds strange but it works. (short shelf that doesn't really hold anything but a specific height of book)
So now just to read 2 library books and 5 loaned books, then start cracking into the boxes and deciding which will stay or go.
