PostSubject: Re-reading old books   Tue May 12, 2009 10:18 am

So I have decided to go back and read some of my old books, starting with my Star Wars books. But I have ran into two problems, one, I have so many boxes of books that I can't find them, in fact I have been looking for my star wars books for the last 3 months and have been unable to find them. I'm a bit worried I might have left them back in Regina.

So that leads me to problem two, I decided that since I can't find my "real" books, I would get ebooks of them instead, saves space! Only its so hard to read a book on a computer, so I decided to try and find a cheap ebook reader. Holy freaking costly Batman, the cheapest e-book reader is 400 bucks and up. So I'm fresh out of ideas, going to go back to reading my comic books. At least I can read those digitally without hurting my eyes.

PostSubject: Big Bookcase or suck er up   Mon Jun 01, 2009 11:56 pm

Well considering I am in the same boat with many of my books being in suitcases from moving, you either have to get bookcases, which I'm doing, or suck up the having to search. If you don't have the space for cases then you just need to go through your books, box by box and find stuff.

This can also lead to finding things you didn't remember owning and deciding to read that instead. It also allows for you to pull books you would like to read and either leave them out or put them at the top of the box. Also going for the "looking through it all" approach will tell you one way or the other if something has gone missing.

If anything take a day and do some box diving..... wow that sounds dirty Shocked

Well I came up with a make shift solution. I now use my craptop for just reading comics and books now, and that works as its not much good for anything else.

I've got some Timothy Zahn shit between my old place and my parents'; I can drop it off the next time I go to Tweed

edit: I can't read stuff on computer. Screens bug me and I can't quantify why.
