  •  The sad part is (7+ / 0-)

    that I know this, but I still want them on my shelf. Hahaha. This is how I am with books. But yeah, I don't like books that much...not $1,000 much. lol.

    I don't mind if you're straight. Just don't flaunt it in public.

    •  It is good advice (5+ / 0-)

      And I know that you won't believe this, but there will come a day when you do decide to give treasured books away.

      My husband and I collected books and eventually, we gave most away.
      It wasn't easy, but I got tired of them collecting dust and taking up space.

      That's one thing that I love about ebooks and Kindle.
      I can collect all the books I want now and they don't take up space or need dusting!
      :-)

      All we need is LOVE!

      •  My dream is to have (4+ / 0-)

        my entire wall covered with books I'll never read again. I think I might have a problem. Thankfully, I don't have the money to actually indulge, otherwise that dream might become a reality. And then what a nightmare moving apartments would be. :p

        •  How is the used book selection (1+ / 0-)

          at your university? If you're lucky you'll find a copy that was only opened the nights before midterm and final exam (I had a few that were pretty much in mint condition when I got to them).

          You also might want to try

          www.abebooks.com

          www.bookfinder.com

          for a couple of online sources of used books. I've also used Alibris for out of print materials that I really wanted to get hold of.
