More about books, packing, and moving.

When you have to look closely at everything you own and decide how much you need to own it, maybe you realize a thing or two about yourself. And you might think some about how you appear to others. For example, what would someone think they knew about me if they opened this box of books, all important enough to me that I not only own them, but I am keeping them and shipping them across the country?

On opening that box, if you imagined the person who owned those books, and if you wrote a description of him or her, including perhaps things like does he or she live alone, if not who does he or she live with--if you, say, created a facebook profile for this person, how much would it look like my own facebook profile? (Assuming the person who owns these books would have a facebook profile...)
