These books are going to college!
If you didn't already tell, I'm a huge book worm! I have a large collection of books (four shelves worth, two rows deep!) and I knew I would want to take some along with me when I moved up to school. But obviously, it would be totally unnecessary and ridiculous to take them all! So I set a limit for myself: 10 books or less. I went through my collection and picked out the ones I've already read several times. If I really love a book, I read it over and over. I get cravings for books! If you get those too, you know what I'm talking about! And if you don't, it's really hard to explain! It's like a food craving, but I want to read a certain book.
Thankfully, I could immediately rule out the ones that would take up the most space and weigh the most: all seven books in the Harry Potter series. I have them on my Kindle. I also have one of my all time favorites, Good Omens, on my Kindle, so I didn't bother trying to find that one, either.
It was actually pretty easy to narrow it down, after that. I ended up with six books packed up in the box with my craft stuff. As you can see in the photo, those books are:
- Smoke and Mirrors, by Neil Gaiman
- The Devil Wears Prada, by Lauren Weisberger
- The Perks of Being a Wallflower, by Stephen Chbosky
- The Realm of Possibility, by David Levithan
- The Lovely Bones, by Alice Sebold
- Forever Princess, by Meg Cabot
You can tell how many times I've read the paperbacks on the top by the creases in the spines! I read some of my books to death (you should see the creases and stains in my Harry Potters!).
