These are for those who own a few books. I'm way past this. Not a good, nor bad thing. Just status quo. I love a real book like I can never love a "file". A PDF or ebook have none of the physicality of the people it took to bring it into existence. A book from the 1700's is hand bound, hand sewn, glued, embossed, and finished all by hands. Each and every volume required skilled craftsmen. An ebook, is just a file by an author, edited maybe, but a file. I see books as works of art.
