Packages from Japan finally arrived (filled with quite a bit more than this), which took around 7 weeks. As my reading stack was growing dangerously low lately, it came in just in time, bringing me manga, detectives (and non-detectivey books, CD's and DVD's). And there was much rejoicing.
The problem of my collection though, is that I don't have proper bookcases for a large part of my books and I occassionally have to air them out a bit and dust them. Especially because I have been away for months. Doing book maintenance always, always, means chaos in my room. Total chaos, I tell you. Especially when stacks of Meitantei Conan tumble (a complete Conan stack by the way, stands surprisingly tall). In a distant past, the books were quite managable too. Lately? Less and less. It has come to the unbelievable point I actually was surprised to find books at certain places, as I was convinced I had placed them elsewhere. Never a good sign. And people thought I had many books in my room in Japan.
