A few years ago, I helped a friend move. Friend was splitting with Spouse, so we moved both of them into their respective new digs on the same day.
Friend e-mailed all those who had offered to help with the move, to let us know we would be moving both Friend and Spouse, and pointed out as fair warning that Spouse had Forty. Boxes. Of Books.
Friend has quite a few books, too, but nothing approaching 40. The heaviest things Friend needed moving were a ginormous computer monitor and a box of rolled coins. Seriously -- Friend had about $400 in coins!
We gamely schlepped Spouse's 40 boxes.
I've moved a lot over the years so have purged my book inventory on many occasions. If I'd kept all the books I'd ever owned, I'd probably be a 40-boxer, too. As it stands, I probably have about 300. Can I still join the BBB Club? (I definitely qualify on the other two B's.)
