Moving and rooms without books
This is somewhat panic-inducing for a book nut. What if I suddenly need to break into A Tale of Two Cities? What if I need to refer to Franny and Zooey for inspiration (everyone needs to be reminded from time to time to do it for the fat lady)? I can’t — I have to rely on my library books for now. Small comfort, as they comprise Macbooks for Dummies and Jillian Michaels’ Master Your Metabolism.
Cicero said that “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” He’s right. My apartment felt empty when my roommate left, but it feels almost emptier now that my shelves are barren. Packing books is the worst thing about moving, as well — I always feel like I have too many and not enough at the same time, and they never fit evenly into the box, no matter what configuration you try to use.
What about you? Do you have moving and packing books as much as I do? I know Corey does…
