I'm moving to New York in three days. I have a collection of almost 300 books and I can't bring them all with me, so I've narrowed it down to the absolute essentials that I need to have in my apartment or it won't feel like home. (Don't worry, the rest of my books will be at my parents' house). This feels like a bizarrely personal list.
