I wanted to let you all know that I will be leaving PBS soon. I can't seem to stop ordering books. I am on vaction and have been going though my books getting rid of books I know . I will either not read or it will be a long while before I will read them. I have bags and bags of books I am getting rid of.Things are getting out of hand. I need to leave so I can read the books that I have left. I do not want to keep ordering books and keep them from someone who may read them right away.

 

I have some books on the way to me and have to send out some books.I have taken all the books off my shelf and my wishlist. I have found someone who is coming to take the books I not longer want on Monday.I really need to get this part of my life under control. I have a small apt and cannot have all these books here.I will miss all of you but I need to do this.I have been so unhappy lately with my book addiciton so out of control. I am happy again finally takeing  a step to get back control.

Gene I still am looking for the book The wreck of the medusa and will still exchange with you if you still want too.

Jen: I still will take the two books from you.They wiil be the last books I get from here but if someone else really wants the two books Please let them have them.

 

I will still be here for a little while longer.Until I receive the books I have on the way and send out the books that I need to send out.And till all the books I have sent out are received.

I will miss all of you but this is something I need to do.

Anne

So sorry to hear you're leaving, Anne. I hope our paths cross again some day. If it's not too much trouble I am still interested in trading the medusa books.

Definitely come back when you get your TBR under control! We'll miss you in August's BOM discussion. I still hope you read and enjoy Black Ships!

Colleen,Valli ,Jen and Cheryl: I will be here for a little while longer. I just sent  out books today and I am still waiting for books to come to me. I think I may stay till we read the August book since I already bought it. I took all the books off my book shelf and wishlist. I have someone coming to pick up a lot of my books on Monday. After the books are gone  I will sort my bookshelf so I can start to get the books I have left read.

Oh I am just so sad. Anne, please keep in touch via email. I think of you as a good friend even though we haven't met. We've shared some great discussions and I will sorely miss your input on the forums and just chatting.

Marci:Thank you I feel you are a good friend also.Let keep in touch by email. I will be here till at least Sept. Till all the books I have sent out are received.Also I want to take part in the August BOM discussion before I leave.I am happy with the though that I will finally be able to start to read some of the books I have here.Because I do not have the room to store so many books and am in school. I need to stop getting so many books for a while.

I'm really glad that you'll be here for the August book of the month. It wouldn't feel the same without our Anne! I'm really proud of you though. You saw a problem and you are taking steps to correct it which is something not everyone is strong enough to do. I'm not! I know that I have a ridiculous amount of books now, but I keep requesting more any time a new one catches my eye. I read as much as possible and post just about everything, but they still keep piling up. I need to learn a lesson from you!

I'm proud of Anne too but I am just really bummed out because I enjoy her presence and contribution to our HF community and she has been a huge part of my enjoyable PBS experience.

I think we need to throw an online going away party....
