You packed how many boxes of books?!
Today I'm linking up with Jessica over at Quirky Bookworm for her #bookwormproblems linkup.
Our big move back to the east coast is somehow almost here, though I can't figure out where the time has gone. The boys and I have less than 3 weeks left in Oklahoma before we drive to Massachusetts to visit my family and finally end up in our new place in Connecticut in time for school to start in August. My husband will follow with our dogs and most of our stuff around Labor Day.
I have to pack everything the boys and I will need to make it until school starts in one car, just in case the movers get delayed. (Military moves NEVER go as planned!)
I was doing pretty well with my lists of necessary items until I realized that meant 6 weeks without our books or regular access to a library. Uh-oh.
Last time we moved they packed 30 book boxes…our packers always love us, let me tell you ;)
I've decided to look at the bright side and use this as a time to work my way through all the books languishing unread on my Kindle and bookshelves. Although there are a few old favorites that I can't bear to be without, and there is no time like a cross country move for comfort reading.
The picture at the top of this post is what I have put aside so far…not so bad until you multiply that times 3 to count all the books that the kids will want to bring. Let's not forget about the stash of books on my Kindle that I haven't read either.
Somehow I don't think we'll be able to narrow things down to just one box of books for all of us.
How many books can I justify moving with me and not on the moving truck? #bookwormproblems
