This past week I’ve been taking morning trips to the Post Office with boxes of DVDs or books that I’m shipping to San Diego via media mail because it’s cheaper than having the movers take them. As I lugged the small yet incredibly heavy boxes to the post office I was trying really hard to remember what books were inside of them. I know that I already pruned my bookshelf significantly, but man it’s still a lot of books.

As I was walking I was thinking to myself, that it was time to get a Kindle. I don’t even remember the last book I finished, but I think it’s time for me to stop the collection of books. I know that this move won’t be my last, and that thought especially makes me want to stop buying physical books.

I just realized now that getting free moving boxes won’t be nearly as easy the next time we move. Hmmmmmm…
