finally bought a bookcase for my room [Jun. 7th, 2010|08:18 pm]
[Current Mood |draineddrained]

It was a bitch to put together. Now I'm starting to empty the boxes of books I've had sitting around for several years. Four observations:

1. I own waaaaay too many books. I think I need to cull (again).
2. It's really hard to fight the urge to stop and start reading a book I hadn't seen in forever. I'm amazed I've managed to resist the evil temptation to be sidetracked while organizing/packing/unpacking books. So far. I've fallen for it way too many times before. :P
3. I need more bookcases. See item 1 above.
4. Why do stacks of books tend to fall over? ARG.

I am so tired. But happy to see these books I haven't seen in ages. They are like old friends. *hugs random book* I still have so many to unpack. When I can indulge, I am so going to reread my favorites. XD;

I'm familiar with 1 to 4. Funny how they never change from one book lover to another^_~

@ 2. Ahahahahaha XD That was exactly my problem when I was unpacking after we moved to our new house. Aren't we hopeless? *_*

Ugh. Don't remind me. I need to buy a book case for my room too ._.

Oh yes, item 2 is hard to fight! But I was good yesterday. I only picked up a book to read *after* I finished the unpacking for the night. XD

OOH~ i love going through my boxes of books.. getting sidetracked from discovering my fav books is the best lol
no one can own too many books!! ^^

Stacks of books fall over because books are uneven and annoying, i tend to have them either:
1. stacked but leaning on something
2. lay them down in rows so that the binding part is facing upwards or towards myself [does that make sense?]
