I recently heard of a lady suggesting you should keep no more than 30 books with you at a time. I now travel overnight once a week, and I’ve gotten pretty good at packing, so let me tell you, this is NOT a good idea.
I’ve got 15 books in my backpack, and it’s almost tipping me over. As a professional, I caution everyone – don’t keep more than 10 books with you at any one time. The other 2,000 or so should go on your shelves with their fellow books, to await a time of great need when you will withdraw them and open your mind to the insight and adventure contained therein.
Please, read responsibly.
