The first of many....

The first nine boxes are packed!! And they are all theatre books that will be going to my office once we get there (I already asked and my office is lined on one wall with bookshelves. Hooray!). I also made an excel spreadsheet for myself of all of them so that I know what I have and when I get there I can put them up on the shelves in genre and author order (so that I can hopefully find a few things occassionally!). I did come up with about twelve books to give away :) But my list includes 334 books that I'm keeping, and I didn't include the ones that I am actually thinking about teaching out of and therefore did not put in the boxes! You can just never have enough books.

Tonight Reid is going to break down our dining room table (with my help I would assume). Then we're going to lean it against the wall so that we have a place to start staging boxes.... then the real packing (and shifting of stuff from one location to the next) can really begin!

Packing books was the WORST part of moving - I couldn't get rid of anything, so we ended up storing 25 boxes or so at my husband's parents' house. And they're still spilling out of any available corner here...

Good luck packing up!

Wow, I don't envy you! Hope it goes well and I definitely agree that you can never have enough books! We had to build floor to ceiling built-in bookcases to hold our collection. :)
