When I was 13-14 I bought the entire Sci Fi section of a bookstore that was going out of business, IIRC $300 cash worked out to about $.25 a book w/ a lot of doubles. Over the next couple years I would take all the doubles or books I wasn't interested in to used book shops & swap for what I wanted...

Ever since then I stop into used book shops at every opportunity and I probably buy a book or two a month that is CW related.

In 93 or so I donated 2000 books to a local library because I no longer had room for them... and I really wasn't into sci fi anymore.

I'm the bane of existance for places like Borders as I don't think I've paid full price for mare than a couple dozen titles in the last 20 years.
