Where have I been? What have I been doing?
See last post for book tour hopping details.
The tour for The Great Unexpected
was mostly awesome: amazing students and librarians and teachers and independent bookstores. I mean: a-maz-ing! I'm so full of all that book love and wish that those who want to cut school library budgets would step into these schools and see the beauty of what can happen with a great librarian, a 'real' library, and 'real' books.
The hardest part of the tour is always the travel - the airport and airplane slog - the sneezing, coughing crowds; the long lines; the delays; the wait, wait, waiting. My body revolts. It takes weeks to recover.
But now I'm home and here is what is happening:
We are packing, packing, packing! It's crazyville here. We've sold our house in western New York state and are moving to Maine.
We are following the grandchildren, who have recently moved there. (With their parents, yes.)
Here are three things we have discovered:
1. We have way too many books.
2. Boxes of books are very heavy.
3. We have a hard time getting rid of any books.
You, too? Too many books? Hard time letting them go?
