Good luck!  I'm sorta dreading the day when I have to tackle decluttering my physical books, but I already know a lot of them don't spark joy anymore, lol.

Books is gonna be the hardest thing for me as well, but a lot of them truly do spark joy and so I know they are good to keep. I think, though, I should add DVDs into this category because there are truly a lot that I just don't even touch anymore and with streaming it makes it a lot easier to watch things. Then I can make more room for books LOL!

Hi guys!

Cam just reached out to tell me I'm in line for next week, and I totally feel shitty about having dipped on you guys for about three hundred years. I really want to start getting back into visiting and participating (yeah, we've heard that before) and it could happen with a less busy semester ahead of me.  I loved the stage version of 'Last Five Years' so I'll see if I can join in this week to earn my place for next week's pick!

Love you all!

I still have far too many books, but something that helped me cull them, at least a little, is Kindle having a lot of  classics available for free due to public domain.  The formatting isn't always great on these editions, but it helped make some difficult decisions easier. Mostly, I kept my hardcovers and signed editions and got rid of all of my paperbacks.

You and my niece would get along terrifically. 🙂

They're finally finishing the renovation in our department this summer so for the fall semester we're moving buildings and I have to shift into an office half the size. When they first told us the furniture we were allowed to have, they said that we could have one (1) six foot bookcase, and one (1) two foot bookcase, totalling ten shelves. That MIGHT cover SOME of my Shakespeare. Maybe. I have no idea how I'll cope having to only take a third of my books. Maybe just piled up on the floor?

I used to feel that way, too. But I’ve moved far too often.

It was easier to vow never to move again than give up my video game collection.

OKAY! I didn't forget this time lmao

So I've been eyeing this movie on Netflix for an extremely long time and I've been only wanting to watch it with y'all cause I'm not positive if I'm going to like it or not lol. It looks like one of those I'll either absolutely love or just get bored with half way through so buckle up friends cause we're gonna watch...

I thought that was the wolf boy from Twilight at first glance but he didn't look enough like an alpaca to be him. I'm also VERY stoned on migraine meds so....

I have two bookcases jam packed divided on fiction and non-fiction because I have so many while the rest live in piles around the house . And I continue to being more home every time I work a library booksale. I am Marie Kondo's nightmare

Yeah, we're going to need you to move to a corner of the basement.  If you could spray for roaches while you're there, that would be greeeaaaat.

Thank you! I might pop in tomorrow or sunday depending on what’s going on. Today is the season finale of The Good place and I have no dvr lol but regardless it’s really nice of you to do multiple viewings!

I can’t wait that long, I will spoil it for myself. I have zero self control.

I don't mind.  People have different schedules.  I was kind of glad no one came in for the second showing of Gigli.  I thought I could hack it but when Rabbit cut the stream I was relieved.  With The Rose it was great to watch it multiple times with different people.
