Used Book Sale Blues

It's "Used Book Sale" time again.  Last year I thought I had a lot of books when I brought 15 boxes to the sale but I think I can top that this year.  I've created a massive mess of books and boxes ALL OVER our house.  Such as:

My desk chair

The kitchen island

Another kitchen countertop

The dining room table

The library

The bonus room

And, the back entry.

Trust me when I tell you that the photos do not do the mess justice.  It's only gotten worse since they were taken.  I may have to go out to the shop and rummage up a few more boxes.  The real question is, who is going to help me load all these boxes in the truck and then unload them at the sale?!  I think a little bribery may be in order here...

The sad thing is, even with all these books leaving the house it is hardly noticeable on my shelves.  I've been collecting books for the past 25 or so years and I've amassed quite a library.  I hope I sell my books and come home with empty boxes.  It's time to part with some of the collection!

Where is this massive library of yours? I also have a book collecting disorder, that I disguise as faux intellect. Or is it the other way 'round...

Good luck! I always have a hard time parting with my books...
