A Difficult Decision

This was so tough.  I spent weeks agonizing over this.  After a lot of thought, I finally made a decision…

…About which books to bring to college.

Seriously, small dorm room = no space for books.  I had to prioritize.

Here’s what I brought:


I do see trips to the bookstore in my future , though. I mean, I hope eight books don’t last through the entire semester.  That would be a tragedy.

    Most campuses also have libraries … hope you enjoy the beginning of college.

    Very true, servetus.

    It was difficult to pick over my own selection. If books felt emotions, lots of them would be hurt. 🙂

    Hello I just discovered your blog and I LOVE your blog design :O !!!!

    I totally understand you this is such a tough decision… I’ve been in college for two years now and each year it was so difficult to pick just a few book for my appartment.

    And this year my decision is even more difficult because i’m moving to England (i’m from France) and I can’t bring any books since I’m going to live there for 10 months and I have to fit all my things in a 23kg suitcase :/. So I bought a Kindle but it’s nothing compared to physical books….

    Oh, I can only imagine how hard it was to choose which books to take with you! But you’ve got a good selection here. I’ve been wanting to read Heist Society for ages and Coffeehouse Angel sounds adorable! Hope you enjoy them all x)

    Yes. Running out of readiing material would be a tragedy indeed. Best wishes at school.

    As much as I hate to say this, I guess an eReader would be a great solution. I hope you have a wonderful semester.

    Oh man, that would be an incredibly hard choice to make! Looks like you picked some good books to hold you over though. 😀
