[quote=""Leyland""]I read somewhere about 'newly rich' mansion owners in the past buying books by the yard/linear feet to fill their libraries. Many never read their colorfully leather bound treasures though.

So, I feel like I do buy books by the yard in increments of two and three at a time even though I don't have a library and I comfort myself knowing that I will read them all eventually! It doesn't get better than collecting books.[/quote]

LOL, exactly Leyland, it doesn't get better than collecting books ! It's a great feeling, I even love just browsing through them and even just looking at them !
