I know, right...hahah! I'm hoping that it will give me some motivation to read. This slump has gone on way too long. I have hundreds of books to read at home. I might be moving in a year so I need to read what I can because I am not moving 600+ books.

I'm also looking to move within the year so I'm trying to get rid of books. Which breaks my heart! :(

Ohhh really? Where are you moving to Elyse?

Ideally, I would love to sell my books but I just find that so hard to do! Even if I made $1 a book it would be amazing!

We're just moving to another house locally. Nothing big. Just another NH town, probably closer to my husband's work. We're cleaning up and minimizing our current house right now to get it on the market. I decided to go through my books and get rid of physical copies of books I haven't read if I can get them from the library for my Kindle. I'll still be keeping probably 300-400 books. Lol. Most stayed packed for the 4 years we lived here! House wasn't big enough to display them. My next house WILL have a library. ;)

Oh wow, that is exciting then! I have a library and I'm not sure that I will when we move so that is reason number one. Reason number 2 is if we move south I do not want to move all my books 3000 miles.

Kristin's (kristinnb) | 186 comments OH MAN!! I wish I had that many books in my home! I love having physical copies but my kindle app is just simpler. Especially since my prime time of reading is at night in the bed and my husband would get annoyed with me having a flashlight on, flipping pages constantly, so reading from my phone is just easier. And it's easy to just borrow an ebook from the library. But I miss my BOOKS!!
