I spent a portion of my day packing up the books of mine that I didn't have in storage. I have eight boxes of varying sizes filled with books, also of various sizes. I have a few very large books still unpacked that might make half a large box with a few medium sized ones to boot. Looking over my books all packed away into boxes it struck me how small my personal library seems.
It always seemed to me that I such a large library. Compared to some people I guess I do, but for me? But then it's a good thing for me that I don't have more books than a I thought I did, given that I am moving just shy of halfway across the country. I have no idea what I will do with them if I actually end up teaching in the UK after I am done at the University of Saskatchewan.
Some books I have given away, donated, etc - at least one large box full. I am giving my collection of Lone Wolf and Cub to my friends Elijah and Iain, but I intend to keep Samurai Executioner. Hopefully, LW&C come out in a larger omnibus editions. But I just cannot part with the majority of my books.
