Amanda’s Traveling Library: Special Editions

Hello, lovelies! As the impending move gets closer I’ve started to think about what kind of things I don’t want to be packed and shipped by the movers. I have some books that are irreplaceable, either for sentimental reasons or because it’s a special edition. I have some other things, like photo albums and the kid’s baby books, paperwork, and such, that I need to ensure stay with me. I thought you all might like to see which books I love enough to drive across the country myself.

Hard to Find/Replace Books

The Atlas Six by Olivie Blake (original paperback edition)

Sentimental Books

Looking for Alaska by John Green (paperback, tv edition cover, 10th-anniversary edition, & collectors edition)

These are the books I fit into one single box to take in the car with me while I drive to our new home state. There were certainly others that I wanted to bring, but ultimately could be replaced if something happens with the movers. I’ve always had good experiences with all of the moving companies we’ve used in the past, but I’ve also heard some horror stories from other mmilitary families. We’re just going to hope and expect the best and we will see what happens.

Do you have special editions or books that are irreplaceable to you?

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.

  1. I moved down to the south of England from the north and my books were the hardest to deal with! I kept all my irreplaceable Point Horror paperbacks that are now no longer printed, my Eragon hardbacks (so, so heavy) and my big hardback Brian Selznick books. As you can imagine actually moving them all was a nightmare for the weight!

  2. Aww i hope your move go well! 🥰
    Ive only moved once so far, couples of town over so we were driving the U-haul and it was just us.. so that’s a hard question!

Have any thoughts?
