Sorting things out

So I'm in the middle of moving.
Yeah. It's official. I'm actually moving out.
At the beginning of next month I'm off from the Corridor and on to the Collective. 

I'm sorting my life into labelled boxes and I'm not entirely certain what these boxes say about me. Most of them just say "Books" right now. Little by little the room I've spent the last 2,5 years of my life in is emptying. Hopefully, I'll like things a lot better at the Collective. You know, with people I've made an active choice to live with and weren't just stuck with.
Yaaay, go me!

50 000

So, it would seem I passed 50 000 pageviews (since July 2010) last night.
Congratulations to me and many thank-you's to you.

The Great Book Sale

In Sweden we have a huge annual book sale every end of February in which all bookshops participate. It was and still remains a sort of sales trick, a stunt as to temporarily up people's interest in buying books. To encourage reading too, yeah sure, but mainly to get people to buy books.
I'm a book nerd above all other ways of being a nerd and as a book nerd I look forward to that time of year. Every year's the same. This past autumn I reached a point where I bought too many books to suit my somewhat shaky economy. So I promised myself I wouldn't buy any books before The Book Sale, a promise I kept and now here I am with ten new books to cram into my already overflowing bookshelves. Not all of them were on sale but seeing as I was already set to buy books I made sure to also buy a few recommended pieces.
Again, I need to promise myself not to buy any books for a while.
Next year perhaps.
