Now comes the hard part: Packing all the books…

Maybe I should have opted for a Kindle after all!

    Wonderful! Take all the books & none of the magazines.

  9. OhioMomPatriot says:

    Congrats! I hope you don't make the mistake I have made in the past with book moving. A bigger box is not better! I packed 10 boxes of books that were so heavy no one could lift them and I ended up having to repack all of them. It is my hubby's favorite story…LOL! Enjoy your new home!!!

  10. Jennifer says:

    That is wonderful, congrats! And a Kindle? Nope, never. Only when a Kindle starts smelling of 'new book', then I'll consider it. *nod*

    Have fun moving!

    Congratulations. I have to agree with Jennifer there is nothing better than the smell of new book, then again i love the smell of old books as well.
    hope you have so much fun organizing your new place, its always exciting turning a house into a home.

  18. Katie Bee says:

    Move some of the books in a rolling suitcase–it helps!
    Ohio Mom Patriot is right. I've been there and done that before.

    Congrats and good luck!

    Congratulations! I am so happy for you. I have a Nook (the ereader from Barnes and Noble). I love it, but I still buy traditional books, especially the beautiful editions. Will you post pictures of the rooms and your bookshelves? 🙂

    But books just feel and sometimes smell so nice! Kindles are convenient but books are pieces of art!

  29. Daydream Lily says:

    so happy for you!! And I now have the kindle and kobo apps for my iPad, I didnt think Id like reading on a screen but I'm liking it alot. I read a mix of printed and digitial books now. My first love will always be printed, but I figure I'll save some trees going digital.

  30. Her name was Lola says:

    No, no, no, paperback is forever best! Congratulations on the new home, lady. How very exciting. xo Lola
