I am therefore I glom
I’m a collector. I keep everything. I hoard and glom like I’m made of glue. I like a song, I download the album, I like the album the whole back-cat of that artist is next. It’s the same with films and books. Like an actor, every film he’s ever been in is purchased. Like a book, the whole back-cat of the author is bought. That’s why the electronic age is a godsend for me. I have my whole music collection on one iPod. My film and TV collection is sitting on 3 hard drives. Finally my books are going electronic too. I can tell you, it is better than the 18 or so boxes I used to have to cart from house to house when I moved a lot.
So I am waiting on my ebook reader coming and I have slowly been changing over to e-books. I usually download .pdf format and it’s working for me.
I still like an actual book for some things though. Books I love beyond all reason and sanity. I’ll be keeping my BDB books (and all my Jessica Bird stuff too. What can I say? I *heart* her.) and my Harry Dresden books and my Meljean Brook’s and Kresley Cole’s and Judith McNaughts ‘Paradise’ but everything else is going and being replaced by e-books.
So I could be really charitable and give all my books away but I have to buy everything on a new format now. So where is the best place to get rid of books? Ebay? Amazon?
And where is the best place to buy e-books? I usually buy from Books On Board. They are always the cheapest and they usually have everything I want in the format I want. But am I missing some great site?
I need recommendations. Help me.
