One advantage of moving around the globe is that I've had to reduce the volume of our possessions. Before starting up with an e-reader, our front room was packed with full bookshelves. Now, with the exception of music books, art, and crafts books, plus 5-10 old favorites saved for their nostalgia value, all the books are gone. Most were donated to the local library, which had no English language books at all at the time.
