join the club; tell me why i keep on buying books that i already have;
or why we want to have every "edition"
or why the dj is worth more than the book
face it ; it is 12 step recovery time

okay i don't 'collect' ML's like you all do.

i like them..i have a LOT of them and they pop off the shelf at me when i
see them...but if it's not a book i like i dont' NEED to
buy it.

yesterday i saw 2 hardy Ml's w dj's circa 1958..not exactly matched editions
but close enough..and they were relatively
inexpensive...but i talked myself out of buying them..and i can't stop
wishing i had.

I dont' particularly LIKE Hardy..i think Tess was a moron, and the Mayor of
Casterbridges wife should have walloped him upside the
left before she left.

But WHY in gods name am i still wishing i had bought those 2 damn books?
