[TSS] College Move in!


I spent this weekend moving back to college, and will be continuing to do so, so I didn't do quite as much reading as I would have liked. I got most of my stuff put away reasonably quickly, but with 3/4 of my library at school, it'll be a couple days before I get my books put away. The way things are looking, I'm going to have to put quite a few in storage in my dorm. On the upside, I've got a loft bed this year, and I've set up an awesome little reading nook underneath it. I've got two mini bookshelves in there I'm going to fill with books, the muslim prayer rug my dad got me in Kurgistan, and a nice floor lamp. My mom is going to get me an easy chair to put in there too, so all in all, it'll be bibliophile heaven.

Wow, sounds fantastic! I kinda wish I had a dorm... Ok, maybe not. Hope you have more time to read between classes!

There is nothing like creating your own reading space, somewhere to which you can withdraw as a prelude to travelling much further from your current scene via the books you're reading. Where ever I've lived, I've always managed to find somewhere like this. I hope you get to use yours often.
