Unpacking, unpacking!

Okay, it looks like of the 163 boxes to be unpacked, I have now emptied five of them, all of which were books.

I've got several books that I think I might have borrowed from other people but I'm not sure. I kind of wish I'd returned them already. Now I will have to ask, "Is this yours?" Seems like a good excuse to have people over to visit, though.

I am heating up some of the soup I defrosted when I moved over here (turkey noodle) and will be having lunch shortly. After that I will work on unpacking the kitchen and going to the home stuff store down the street, which I think might be a good source of things like small garbage cans and suction-cup powered toothbrush holders. I'll see soon.

I think you have one of mine - Storm Constantine and Michael Moorcock

Yep, got it! And I finished reading it.

I think you still have my book about Jin ping mei, it has a green cover. Wow you guys have way more boxes than we do! (going on what we moved last time - not any that have been packed yet!)

Yep, was just looking at it and thinking, "If only I could have seen the title I would have already read this." I'm going to start in on it next since I just finished Jonathan Strange.

I was just wishing I could have you here to help me figure out how to organize my books, this is just madness. Comic books, children's books, non-fiction, travel, short story collections ... I have no idea how to organize this!

Lols! I think I loaned that to you about 2 years ago! Glad you're going to be able to read it. :)

I love putting books on bookshelves and sorting them out. It really bothers me when, like in our current place, they're not properly sorted. I can't wait to get them organised in the new place! Sounds to me like you've got the start of catagories! Fictions easiest, just do genre then alphabetise, then divide the rest up into subjects/areas. What gets complicated is when you have "foreign language" and then you don't know whether to classify something with the language books or the subject books. Clearly I am far too anal about these things. But I enjoy it!

I CAN be really anal about books but I've just completely let myself go in when I moved here. This seems like such a chance to finally get things organized correctly, but of course I'm limited by how much shelf space I have, or rather, don't have.
