I’m ready not to be in the process of moving. All of my books are packed and have been stored in the garage, and the two naked bookshelves in our living room are looking at me like they’re depressed.
If you’ve moved before, you know that moving involves getting rid of lots of things you’ve collected but no longer use. We actually had a number of books that we decided would be better of in other people’s collections, so we took them to the used bookstore.
Now, it wouldn’t be a good time in the used bookstore if we didn’t look around a bit, right? I was initially on the hunt for used XBox 360 games since I anticipate more brain breaks as I continue to work on my dissertation, but was quickly distracted by the young adult section.
So I picked up books for series that I previously started but had not completed.
What’s nice about this is it brought The 5th Wave back into my consciousness and now my wife and I are listening to it together. Maybe we’ll even see the movie when we’re done.
Have you read either of these? Do they wrap up their respective series well?
