As someone mentioned on the “House Art” thread, the psychiatrists would have a field day in my house.

FTFY

Check out @mathematics with the badass warlock bass guitar!

@Florentine_Pogen - I've only just upgraded from an Alba, which always screamed, "the bailiffs may take everything, but at least I'll still have my stereo".

@DA Baracus - you're starting to remind me of a lad I went to college with who started talking about I Spit On Your Grave in a discussion about porn. If all you can find is creepy rapey shite, and it isn't what you were looking for, you're doing it wrong. PM for tips.

I'll pass. Don't need porn and don't care for it.

Folk, get rid of your CDs. Copy them in to iTunes or an external hard drive for storage, then punt them on Ziffit.

Books are different of course. Keep them and cherish them. Love a good book and have never been a fan of Kindles or similar technology. Can absolutely see the appeal and advantages of them, but can't beat a physical book for me. 

Maybe it's a tactile thing. Maybe it's that we use screens enough during the day that it's a welcome break. Whatever it is, I love them. I can, and have, read books multiple times. Have even bought a few multiple times during to wearing it out (and once because I dropped it in the bath, although that was 20 years ago).

CDs though don't have the same value. They just take up space. I still buy them online as you can often get albums for a pound, but after that I chuck them or add them to my Ziffit pile (after importing them to my iPod).

 

No.

First copy of the Da Vinci Code I’ve seen on this thread.

It's on his shelf with War and Peace.

Both unread probably.

Read everything on the shelf.  War and Peace was ok, way too long though.

Much prefer Dostoyevsky tbh.

Incidentally one shelf down from W&P is Ulysses by James Joyce, I found it awful and now I would have given up.

haven't read Ulysses but it's been torture enough reading Knausgaard discussing it so I doubt I'll bother.

I too have Ulysses and had to stop not long after starting it because I wasn't enjoying it.

Chapters seemed to be about 100 pages long!

A wise choice.

If it wasn't for the stubbornness of youth I would have binned it.   Incidentally I thought it was pish and was none the wiser after reading through it.

Nowadays if I'm not enjoying a book I just put it down.

I have two bookcases but I need a third one and I have no room or money.

As a result I have various 'Penguin Piles' in need of better lodgings that are wedged into any available space.

I'd like all my books in one place and in alphabetical order but that's probably never going to happen unless I get rid of other things I have millions of - football programmes, 7 inch singles, CDs, LPs, 30 year runs of magazines, hundreds of minidiscs with recorded John Peel programmes on them etc, etc.
