Laura Ingalls Wilder's Eviction

It's official.
I have run out of bookshelf space. I have come to the bitter conclusion, after much deliberation, that in order to make room for my newest additions to the classical literature I have on my bookshelf, someone had to go.

Little House on the Prarie, the complete set, excluding, of course, the novella actually entitled 'Little House on the Prarie' (which I don't actually own yet...) needs to be relocated in order to make room. They will stay in my room, but their new home is in the process of floor plans. My options are: splurge on another much needed bookshelf, or resort to boxes. I don't prefer the latter, but let's face it, that one is a money saver.

I'm also taking inventory of the books I do own. And I have found that I am missing my copy of 'A Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Atwood.

MCC: 5

Word of the Day: Funghi

Quote of the Day: "I can't believe the books people get rid of. I'll gladly take them because then I get the pleasure of selling them to young people such as yourself who seem to care about their well being." The old(er) man at the used bookstore.

I'd go with option number one. Bookshelves are awesome! Mostly because they are filled with books...
