All in a box

I am packing to move houses. And my favourite place to start is the bookshelf. As I try to figure how to place the books of such various dimensions, I wonder why they can’t be all of the same shape and size to make packing neat and easy.


I smile. It is the difference that makes each unique. The length, the breath, the thickness, the binding, the cover, the content… Each so different.


And they shall all have a place in the cardboard cartons.

Good luck with that!

I try to keep my book collection down to three bookshelves worth. I try but I fail. They are the best things to have around!

I look at my books as I pack them, if I haven't read them in 2 moves, they find new homes.

For me, packing books can be fun since I usually end up finding one I haven't seen in a while. I usually end up reading or scanning through them as I pack them away.

Happy packing!
