For the love of God, Montressor, _don't forget to label the boxes!_ And I
do mean a _full catalog_. As a bibliophile who has moved books in large
quantities on several occasions (and Ben Franklin had it right: three
moves equals one fire) I know that it can be a hassle when you _really
need_ just that one item, and it's in one of the boxes filling _that half_
of the room. All the same size, color, label (front room).
