Yes! I have three (paper) copies of The Forge of God by Greg Bear. I guess it sounded good every time I picked up a copy at a used book store
So tempting to ask how many copies of Anvil of Stars you own....

I'm afraid to look

I've actually been going through my paper books, looking to at least purge duplicates. Once I started using LibraryThing it helped.

Just been into London for an exhibition... Came home with 3 print books (2 catalogues and another book). Sigh, where am I going to put them given that the specific bookcase is stuffed full?

If you have enough books, you could use them to build a brickcase...

I have severely downsized the number of physical books that I own. I keep ones that have sentimental value.

Impractical yet hilarious.

Last physical book that I've ordered was Waugh Abroad: The Collected Travel Writing. It cost me 50€, half of that on shipping. I've a minor hoarding problem, stemming from my cousins tardiness in returning my books. When I buy a book, it's very rarely leaving the house. I even have a hard time parting with books that I've never finished. Ebooks have been a perfect remedy to this problem. I was reading them when it was not even possible to buy them. I don't put much emphasis on the medium I read on. Sometimes it's great to smell the book, sometime it's great to hold a light device instead of a hefty tome, then again, I do love hefty tomes as well.
