Good luck on the move, Steve.
They have cast iron skillets in Landers. I saw several in there last week.

Thanks Tim, yes I recently discovered that when I learned about Landers and went there for the first time. Wish I had known earlier, that was a lot of weight added to my bag, haha.

Lol. I can imagine that it was. They are quite heavy. FYI: Big sale there tomorrow through Friday.

Kindle Unlimited is the way to go. I have bought a few hundred books from them as well but will read several books a month all for the $10. It is portable, you never have to worry about losing your place and you can carry enough books for a trip of any length and resupply anywhere with WiFi.

I have one technical reference book on loan that I use a lot, I have had it over 3 years and use it often. It would have been over a hundred dollars to have bought and this way it cost nothing extra and I always have it with me.

If you don't want to spend the $10 your hometown public library may have a kindle lending section as well. Mine at home has one and while I have never used it my sister has and she reads as much as me. (well over 100 novels a year)

Good info for our move Rick. We will only take "loved books" and the rest will go.

Cheers, Steve.

Just for info. You guys might want to check out 'HathiTrust Digital Library' and 'Search Project Gutenberg' for online books. There is another website that I can't remember just now. Might do some searching, if interested.

Digital books just don't have the same smell as an old book!

Nor the nostalgia and mystique. I do seriously hear you baldilocks as we went through 11 or 12 boxes of books this afternoon, I did find a 1930's hard back by Edgar Allen Poe "Complete Tales and Poems" reprinted in the 1930's as well as many early Sci Fi and fantasy reprints from the turn of the century but alas I will not reread. Too many other eggs to fry though time will tell and I may end up kicking myself for not continuing to hoard. Fahrenheit 451 looms in my grey matter.

Cheers, Steve

Ah, but when you are relaxing on the beach under the palms with your piña colada by your side and without a care in the world, it would be nice to reminisce with an old book not only enjoying re-reading it, but also the time when you first read it. I must admit to reading a book three or four times over a couple of years before it goes onto the shelf for a few more years and I am often surprised at things which didn't fully register on previous readings.

Good luck BP!

I left Oz in 1996 and have moved one country to another 5 times.

Every move, I take less than I did on the previous move.
