    I admit to being a hoarder. I am NOT going to recovery. I will REFUSE all interventions. I will continue to be a hoarder.
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    Hi, my name is Travelin'Jack and I am a hoarder.



    I'm with the gang here, embrace it. I don't usually sell books (some from time to time) and also like to have multiple copies. Probably some level of OCD or other disorder involved.

    That's an older pic too, I've got three CD Shining's in there now. Here is the issue, I'm out of desk space and shelf space. Do I double stack? Too risky, I know.

    I have to say I never quite understood the reasons behind multiple copies of the same editions. Different states/editions I totally understand. I'm open to schooling.....

    I see the predicament that could cause. Don't want to mess with the flow.

    No real reason behind it. Unnecessary over collecting. Makes more sense for flippers and re-sellers. How it started for me is, I bought an extra copy for my sister. She get's a surprise King gift edition each year for her birthday. Then I ended up buying two extra in case I gifted another. Then somehow, no explaination to the madness, but 3 copies of King GEs became the baseline. Yeah, I hear you... coo coo.

    I gotcha. I always was thinking of other "upgrades" or missing editions, but now that my collection is more or less complete (according to MY rules) I now search for the pertinent upgrades to my current editions. But, I take your point.

    I've told myself that outside of CDs King GEs, it's just one copy. Can get out of control fast.

    Reduce everything to 2 copies? What about when Sleeping Beauties comes out?

    Selfishly, I also need a copy of Buick 8 if you are reducing
