I'm Afraid to Read This

Confessions of a book hoarder


  1. Anonymous7:23 AM

    Sounds like Andy J. but not us, of course.


  2. Be afraid! Be very afraid!!!
    A mere 1250 books does not a hoarder make! My "stock" of course ...
    Bragging about numbers would show just how far gone I am, so I'm not telling!

  3. A few months ago, we finally cleared out a storage unit we'd been renting to the tune of $100 a month for years. Most of the contents consisted of boxes of books. After a serious (read: heartbreakingly difficult) cull, we donated 30 boxes of books to the Friends of the Library booksale. That left us with close to 100 boxes of books, all of which are currently stacked precariously against one wall in our garage. If they ever topple over, we'll have a real Collyer brothers situation on our hands.

  4. @ Deb: Wow! You've got the (even some) books boxed? I'm impressed!!!
