I’ve always had a thing for books. Well, certainly since I was able to afford buying them when I began my working life anyway. I devour books – have done for years. Many years in fact. Traditional books are everywhere in my house and have been in every house wherever I lived, whether a small place or large. Even when living in a caravan park for a while, with the vast majority of my books in storage I kept at it – buying and hoarding books. Not rubbish books – I don’t collect garbage! Which makes me a little different from the author of the article linked to below.
With the advent of ebooks, my hoarding ways have continued. Sure, I have stopped hoarding traditional books (more of them anyway – at any great speed – just the odd one here and there). I now hoard ebooks and I have a virtual truckload of them – possibly two. However, I still refuse to collect rubbish.
