What are some crafty ways to sneak books into your house?
My personal library is growing more and more, and my mother reeeeaaaaally doesn’t like it. All of my books are kept in MY ROOM, which is the basement, and so they’re out of her way. She says they’ll be a pain in the neck to haul around when we move this summer, and although I assured her I would move every single one of them myself, she’s forbidden me to buy anymore. I’m 18 and it’s my money. And I’m not buying in bulk, it’s just a book or two I pick up at the bookstore.
I’ve tried the, “Well, I could be buying drugs or booze or something!” line and even pulled out the, “Didn’t Daddy sell his personal collection to buy your engagement ring?” line. I’ve used these one too many times, I’m afraid.
*I am NOT going to get rid of my books. They’re like crack for me. Any book haters can shove their snarky comments where the sun doesn’t shine and get lost.*
I would really appreciate some ideas on how to sneak books into the house, as surreal as that seems.
