One other thing

I spent some time today unpacking boxes in the office. I got all of them unpacked, except for books and games. We’re going to go through our books again, and sell/donate a bunch more of them. We have like 10 boxes of books, still. That’s after purging a whole bunch of books, and selling them at a second hand book store. We sold so many books, we made over $250 (at about $0.75 each). That’s a lot of books.

I’ve decided that I am going to get rid of almost all of my non-technical books. I’ve found that the books I kept last time are such favorites that I don’t read them anymore. There are about 20 books that I can read in just 3 or 4 hours, since I know the stories so well. I find that I’m basically skimming them, and relying on my memory to fill in the storyline. Seems kind of pointless to keep moving them around the country, when I could just think about them for a couple of hours, and get the same result.

I will, of course, be keeping the Corps series by W.E.B. Griffin, though. That is a requirement for all jarheads. Actually, I’m a big fan of all of his books.

The plan is to keep the leatherbound books. I haven't read most of those at all; much less enough to get bored with them. We just need to cut back on our quantity a bit.
