Over the past several weeks I have been busy unpacking and sorting through a mountain of boxes that have been in storage for a number of years. Of course, the cats have enjoyed this very much. Most fun and interesting have been the boxes of photos, CDs and books. I forgot I had so many books in storage – all but about 50 were gifted.
The following photo shows where they’re now residing until more bookcases can be built. The books are doubled up on each shelf, so between 300-400 books.
This is a real mish-mash of books, many have been given to me by folks coming here for short tours, and then leaving – and leaving their books here. So it’s an interesting cross-section of what english speakers go overseas with. Heavy on the mysteries and thrillers – also, interestingly, romance novels, biographies, and autobiographies.
Most (except the romances) I’ve already read, and so now I’mgoing back to those I enjoyed most, and re-reading them.
So I thought I’d do some entries on those I’ve found most interesting, and some not so interesting – beginning with the next (or so) blog entry.
