Ahh, the Old Assault on Books gambit. Except in our case, three of Mrs. BW's kids and two of her siblings tried to force me to dump my entire stereo and AV system, along with 200 LP albums, and a similar number each of VHS tapes, CDs, and DVDs along with 22 cases of books.

Meanwhile, these same people insisted we had to keep 20 cases of family pictures and VHS tapes that no one else wanted, had room for, or in the case of the tapes, had the capability to play. My books fill 120 lineal feet of book shelving; the Stereo and AV system along with CDs, DVDs, tapes, and LPs are safely stored in our entertainment center.

All the pictures and tapes that are not ours can be found in their cases in our garage. When the entire family comes down to Florida for Mrs. BW's Birthday this summer anyone who does not leave with their own pictures and/or tapes will forfeit them, to be dumped in the trash.

BTW, all of our books, tapes, CDs, and DVDs are catalogued.
