Booking through Thursday

Here are the questions for today, followed by my answers:

Do you have multiple copies of any of your books?

If so, why? Absent-mindedness? You love them that much? First Editions for the shelf, but paperbacks to read?

If not, why not? Not enough space? Not enough money? Too sensible to do something so foolish?

No, I do not have duplicate copies of books. If I find I have purchased a duplicate (because I have had a brain freeze or something) I almost immediately give it away to someone I think will love it.

Why no duplicates? Space, people, space! I don't have enough room for the books I have now, much less duplicate copies!


do different versions of the same book (read: the bible) count? we have several of those.

i used to have about 15 copies of several of c.s. lewis' books, but i'm sort of cheating cuz they're left over from when i was teaching his work -- and i think i've passed most of them along by now.

oh, i do have several copies of the same dr. seuss and shel silverstein books but that's cuz some of them are missing pages or have crusty stuff on or in them. don't ask.
