My paperbacks I packed away when I graduated from high school. Ever since I started an account on GoodReads.com, I've been trying to remember when I stored it away. I was sure it was in my parents garage, but several attempts turned up nothing. Finally, a couple weeks ago, I took a few days off work with the soul purpose of turning the garage inside out. Thankfully the weather cooperated, and after a scraped knee and a few nicks and bruises on my hands and arms, I finally found it. It wasn't in an old computer/monitor box as I originally thought, but instead was in my old stereo box. I had forgotten I lined the box with garbage bags in case it ever got wet from the bottom, which it slightly did. I was thrilled to open it and find them all in as good a condition as the day I packed them.
