Starting Fresh

At the end of this month we will be changing residence. We've found a two-bedroom apartment for a comparable price about 15 minutes from where we are now. It's the upstairs of an 1899 carriage house. We're pretty excited to leave behind our creaky place and noisy upstairs neighbors. We're optimistic that this change will be positive all around. And lucky Jeremy will now be only a mile from his work!

Moving inevitably causes me to ponder my overflowing library of books. What can I live without? What books haven't I read and figure their one-time reads anyway? We have a constant battle to keep books at bay. I'll be parting with a couple stacks and hope I won't regret their empty spots on my shelf. Those spots won't stay empty for long though, they never do.

If you do get rid of books you should attempt to find a store that will buy them. Might not be much, but you could maybe get a tank of gas!

I can relate to this. We just moved and I had the "Definitely Keep", "Probably Can Part With", and "I Can't Decide" stacks. I must confess most ended up back in the "Keep" stack before they went into boxes.

I'm so excited about your new place. It sounds awesome.

What a wonderful way with words you have! Our home has no room for my precious books, so Kyle's have been regulated to the shelves in his office at school and mine to the basement. Our dream is to make an edition of a floor-to-ceiling library one day!

P.S. I am SO excited I started blogging and found you! :) Hope your move and adjustment is going well!
