As a former bookstore owner/operator and as a lifelong collector, I can
only state that my experience has shown the truth to be that it is a very
small percentage of prissy collectors that do not read the books they
collect. Most people collect far more than they could ever read in a
lifetime, but the intention is to read the books. Yes many books are
beautiful, sometimes delicate works of art, and some books are of great
historical significance, but they are a tiny minority of collected books.
And, to come back on topic, I bet it is the vast majority of Modern
Library collectors read their books!
