The bookshelves in the Toy Room yielded another 106 books, mostly paperbacks. I fiercely culled my hardcovers during my move east 8 years ago; there were weight costs for the move and volume costs for the months of storage between selling Toad Hall and buying Toad Woods. I culled paperbacks, too, but with considerable leniency.

Hmmm. 662 + 106. There I was at 768 books. You know where this is going, right?

Yep. There were 5 more books on those shelves I could part with.

Total books for the Science Fiction Outreach Project in my car = 773

In the back seat.

Yes, there's room for more. I bet I could fit another 50-100 books spread across the box tops without losing sight lines. Maybe more. Given my car, probably more. Plus tuck places in the hatch area after I load luggage and kipple in.

Hmmm...southern route. Maybe I'll stop at Fanhihall and see if Joe has any he can part with....

I love my car.

Great of you to offer to do this. Glad people came through with books, and that you now have more space thanks to giving away some of yours :->

Yes, I was thinking along those lines myself.

I would think 773 books (now 774), mostly paperbacks, weigh no more than 2 passengers in the back seat and the car has seat belts for 3.

So you just need a thousand more, ya?

Or, uh, 1200 more, I guess. Or 1300.

1199. I added John Brunner's The Sheep Look Up to the car stash after I found it when putting fresh sheets on the bed in anticipation of my return.
