No nonsense here

Well, maybe a bit. I feel like I should post a little something, but I'm not exactly sure what. Not really much to report. I think I'm going to start selling some books out of my library, the ones that I have read but don't feel the need to ever read again. not because they are bad, but I don't know.... hmmm what is it about some books that make me want to include or disculude them from my library. Oh, I do have a first print edition of Atlas Shrugged that I'm going to get rid of, bad memories of the person who gave it to me and I will never be able to read through the whole thing because of it. It's in not so great condition because it was a library book so there are all the marks of a library in it. I guess there is a book store in Ames that gives you money for books or double credit for books so say if they were going to give you a dollar for a book, they would give you $2 in store credit instead. So I was thinking before I move I could go there, drop off my books, get store credit, and than after I move, go back and buy more books. Sounds good to me anyway. I'm kind of nervous about moving, I will need to start packing things up and cleaning the grime out of my apartment that has acumulated from a year + of art and craft making. Good luck on that for me. I'm pretty sure that as soon as I tell my landlord he will start showing it so I will have to give up mr b for a bit, which Jason has offered to take him in for a bit. I sure do love that guy. Anyway, no pics today, just me rambling about books and stuff. Have a good forth of July.

I have a ton of books and re-read about 75% of them at one time or another. There's that last 25% though that I didn't really enjoy for one reason or another but can't bring myself to get rid of. It will be interesting to see what you end up doing!

Happy Belated 4th!

It is hard to get rid of books. I have books from when we homeschooled, books from when the kids were little, books that I got from my mom and dad's house and books that we have collected through the years. We are in the process of redoing are computer room that I stored many of these books. Oh what to do, what to do?
