Next time I’ll make sure the box fits in my car before I buy it. It was a close call.
I went looking for boxes to pack my books into. I thought I’d start out the back room.
And I’ve been very harsh. I decided that if I didn’t love it or couldn’t remember it, then it could go. So far I have one bag for my mother, one for my son, one for my friend and three boxes to take to the second hand shop to trade.I’ve given away about one hundred books so far. I must say I started out much harder than I finished. I think I can only give away books for about 45 minutes. Then I start reading the backs more carefully and reading the first page and it all gets harder.
And I filled that big box up with ones I want to keep.
Of course no one will ever be able to lift it. It’s a hefty item.
That book there – An Evil Cradling. Very very good.
Anyway that box cost me $25. It was the biggest one at the cheapest store in town. And I really haven’t made a dent in the books.
I’m going to have to hit the streets and look for some good old cardboard boxes.
