Been kinda busy. The CREEPS BY NIGHT, by the way, is a 1931 horror anthology edited by Dashiell Hammett.

sfear, I have to ask (because I'm incredibly nosy): how many books do you read in a week?

Not as much as I like. I'm a collector reader (meaning I buy more than I'll ever be able to read) and have been building my collection, by now some would call it a library if I had it organized, since 1965 or '66. Can't help myself. It might even be a disease. But it makes me happy.

You know, if it makes you happy, who cares? Unless your house looks like an episode of "Hoarders", then that's a different story. :D

Interesting post...I've read a few of those posted and a few others have given me some nice ideas.

Even though I've got about 600 books on my NOOK, I have probably double that in Hardbacks & Paperbacks. The NOOK I take to work or on trips so I don't have to carry multiple books or worry if it's raining and getting them wet. At home though I usually read "real" books. It makes me happy to know others still read real books as well.

Not going to knock ebooks or anything but I'm a solid paper person when it comes to books (I want my tomb lined with tomes). I book hunt all the time, thrill of the chase and all that I suppose.:)

I love the accessibility that the ebooks offer, but I"m old school when it comes to my reads. I'll eventually pick one up so that i can read ebook exclusives and start reading in to newer authors with the inability to publish in print.

I book hunt all the time too, if you haven't checked out any library sales give them a look. A lot of ebay fanatics always seem to snatch up some of the rarer things, but I never walk out without a months worth of good reads.

Oh, I never pass up a library book sale if I can avoid it. We've got a big bi-annual sale coming up later in the month. Been patiently waitin' and savin'. Library's also got a freebie shelf (several actually) I try to check at least once a week. Earlier today, well yesterday as it's Sunday now, I found THE COLLECTED STORIES OF KATHERINE ANN PORTER and a book about WWI generals called THE SWORDBEARERS by Correlli Barnett.
