Books

The one thing my mother never got rid of -- or could say no to purchasing -- was books. (The grammar of that sentence scares me too). Like me, she collected all sorts of things she might one day read, but probably never will.

So the idea of getting rid of grad school books is not one that would probably cross my mind, even if I were out of the profession -- as I may one day be, obviously.

It doesn't disturb me as much as the prospect of tossing out odds and ends, though, because books are easier to get back.

My fear is that I'll throw away something literally irreplaceable in a fit of pique.

No sign of that yet, thankfully.
