    I'm sure I have a few hundred books that I could get rid of the physical versions and just stick with the Kindle version, but I don't want to rebuy the Kindle ones (not like you can buy them on the secondary market). Plus browsing through a Kindle is PAINFUL. It's not as easy as just browsing a shelf.

    Hopefully we get a house with sufficient space for all of the shelving we need. I'm hoping for an unfinished basement that I can convert into a small theater room, and a dedicated library with "custom" (aka simple) built-ins.

      Bring your truck and a dolly and I can save on the truck rental.
      Oh, I see. No way around that pain. Even with an extra dolly.

        All 85 boxes are now safely in storage. And I'm EXHAUSTED.

        Also, if you need to know, you can probably fit 100 of these boxes in the a cargo van from Uhaul.

          Great job.  Do you know if Uhaul allows their cargo van to go out of State?  Asking for a friend.  Hahahahahaha

            A few months ago, I was able to get my hands on all five issues of "Fantasy & Science Fiction Magazine" that first ran SK's "The Gunslinger". Got 'em at what I felt was a good price and in good condition, not to mention that none of them had mailing labels on them ...

            I put them each in protective bags, but had been thinking for a while about getting a slipcase for them. Found a place called Everything Called Books (https://everythingaboutbooks.com/) and, I gotta say, I'm very pleased with their results.

            Had a lengthy back-and-forth email conversation with Patrick there and he always responded quickly. I found an AI-generated image and made it a silhouette, provided it to him, and he created the one-off slipcase very quickly. It was packaged so well I thought I should have done an "unboxing video" for Youtube; probably the best packing I have ever gotten from ordering online.

            If you're looking for a one-off special slipcase at a good price, give Patrick a buzz at that site.

            P.S. The extra space at the top is my fault actually. When I measured, I was measuring the books in their protective bags and not thinking that I'd take the books out of them to put in the slipcase.

            I tried putting the bagged books in the slipcase, but didn't like how it looked.

              Nice case.  A little black square of foam at the top or bottom and you won't even know the gap is there.  
              Great job on the design.
