Moving myself, my son and my book babiesPosted: July 20, 2013 Filed under: On Books | Tags: books, real-estate 5 Comments
As my long-time reader will know, I’ve been trying to sell my house for months. Well, we’re all systems go; the house finally sold. Settlement is at the start of August, but my son and I are moving into my parents’ place next weekend, until we can find our new, downsized home…
…which still needs to be big enough to hold not only two humans, but my study (which has a big writing desk) and a whole lot of books.
It also means that I spent an entire day packing over 30 boxes of books. I did keep a few out to read over the next couple of months, but I feel weird about seeing the rest of my cherished collection packed away.
Now I guess I’d better pack the rest of the house!
Anyway, that’s why I’ll be semi-MIA on the blog over the next week and a bit. However, a few excellent folks are providing guest posts, so you won’t be totally neglected! And I’ll still be around on social media … no doubt whinging about packing. 😉
Congrats on selling the house! I also have major book collection envy 🙂
Hehe, thank you. I’ve been at it for twenty years (and that’s a sobering thought…)!
Wow, I hope the next house has a library to keep all those books. Happy moving!
I don’t think they’ll all be in one place when I move, which is a bit sad, but better than losing them altogether!
