  1. Two tips:

    * First, weigh the bag empty. You might be surprised how much weight the bag itself brings to the table.

    * Second, if you find the contents of the backpack tend to increase over time, the best solution might be a smaller bag, maybe one that’s smaller than you think you need. Forcing constraints on what you carry can be weirdly liberating.

  2. It’s a good idea to weigh the bag empty. Thank you! And I’ll consider getting a smaller bag when this one finally comes apart the whole way (which will be Real Soon Now).

    As much as I hate the idea of spending money to solve a problem, my Kindle (or any other e-book device) allows me to carry an almost infinite number of books. While it doesn’t satisfy the tactile ritual of reading, you can still being the words with you. I still buy the BOOK book too, for those titles that rise above digital blech, but at least I can read it before I spend twice as much money as I usually do. ;)

  4. Kindles are always an option and I don’t have anything against them. It’s just that I don’t NEED one, so I don’t spend the money. I don’t have a car or cell phone, either.

    I don’t hate any of those things, but I live fine without them, so it’ll be paper books for me.
