I cleaned off a bookshelf of Shakespeare and Dreamtime books... and filled it with more Shakespeare books, and SFF novels, and books about WWII in Russia. Those other books (The already read ones, that will be going with me to Michigan because they are referency stuff I may need again) are now in boxes, and the already-read novels that are being shipped off to my Mom eventually are in a different box.

I don't usually keep novels, except very special ones. Book management is an issue around here.

This is a sick, sick story. And I dunno what I would do without porphyrin to vet my wacky medical ideas.
