What to take?

Ok, so I need a little feedback.

For those of you who know me and have seen my room in whatever apartment I have lived, you know that the main thing I own are books. I love to read, but it is a bit more than that. When people move someplace new they try and create a small space wherein they fell at home. For some people that involves family heirlooms, or a shotglass collection, or maybe some posters that display their identity in some way. For me it is my library that satisfies that nesting instinct. The problem with this is that books are not a very practical thing to carry when you are travelling light, but there is no way that I am going to leave for two years emptyhanded.

So here is where I need your help. I am trying to decide what books I should take with me. My question to you is this... "If you were going to be gone for two years and could only take two books with you, what would they be?"

Such a difficult question, Samuel!
I don't know... you should probably take Les Mis. And your journal (duh) And some pictures of me :) Hmm... maybe I'll just go through your library and you can take with you whatever I don't steal from you - sound like a plan? :)
Or you could just not talk about leaving, cause I'm going to miss you :(

hey there, fellow Morocco volunteer!! :) I just came across your profile, and, to be honest, I've been asking myself the same question. :) I think I'm bringing one or two "wanted to read for years but haven't gotten the chance" books, a Bible, The Qur'an, and then, a must, The Giving Tree. :) If you can wait until September, we can always trade, too. :)
How many days until you leave??????
