The Great Labor Day Purge
So, because I actually need to access my home office (and because I value my marraige) I spent the holiday weekend organizing all my books, mostly to get rid of as many as possible. The 2 photos below should make the problem clear.
After a few hours of work I was this far (the piles are actually organized - trust me):
After a bit longer (still orgainzied, just lest distinguishable. My son launched a great expedition to climb Mount TBR):
And finally, I dicovered that I do actually have bookshelves back there.
19 boxes of books.
They are on there way to a combination of a local used bookstore and the library (though I imagine quite a few will find their way into the recycling system). I'm exhausted, but it's nice to have my office back. Any bets on how long it'll take before I'm drowning again?
