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? – BTT
I think I only have one book that has more than one copy: Captain Corelli’s Mandolin. I received my first copy through BookCrossing, and I’ve been meaning to release it for a couple of years now considering last November, I just bought a second copy for me to keep.
In general, I do not buy a lot of books because I have limited financial resources, and I don’t reread books very much. I do buy used books at this annual book fair which allows me to buy books I have read before or get classics I need or want to read. I also don’t have much space at present. In the end, my dream house would also have a dream study where I would have shelves of books on the walls.
That dream study sounds lovely!
