168 & Counting

“Books give a soul to the universe, wings to the imagination, flight to the imagination, and life to everything” – Plato

Who here hates moving? The packing and the driving and the unpacking and the reorganizing? Just the first two drive me bonkers, the last two aren’t so bad.

So recently, very recently actually, I signed a lease with a friend and moved to a small townhouse much closer to school. I’m very excited! I no longer have to wake up before the sun. An hour more of sleep makes a big difference.

So I was able to move all in one day and all in one trip. My darling cousin was kind enough to to offer his truck for all my big stuff; bed, desk, drawers, two bookshelves, you know the important stuff. (Though we were not able to get the box spring upstairs when it came time to unload everything.)

My Mom’s little Xterra held all my clothes and blankets because well they just wouldn’t fit in my car because my car was packed tight with all my books. Seriously, look: 

(Note: we weren’t even finished loading.. My mom took this after I told her I had books in my suitcase… She wasn’t very happy, her exact words were: “Who in the hell moves with more books than clothes?!”)

This girl. This girl right here moves with more books than clothes. In fact my roommate was kind enough to help me unpack my books and organize them (alphabetically by author). Afterwards, we counted them to find out I had 168 freaking books!! I fell in love with them even more.

How crazy is it to think that you own over a hundred books and plan to get more and more and more?? I can’t wait to add to my beatiful collection and buy another bookshelf… Happy sigh.

Is there anything that you have an unrequited love for?

Lots of love,
