As for me it`s anything I can make a profit on,any rare titles especially W E Johns,Biggles,science fiction etc.

kinda makes an extra income for me.

It can be quite lucrative.

Anyone else into it.
Not really. I like to read but don't collect

As part of my studies I got access to various scientific journals and volumes. It was fascinating just to see the evolution of science and mathematics over time. As part of my research I do collect but it's as much of self-interest and curiosity as much as work.

As for leisurely reading - H.G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Douglas Adams and Henning Mankell are my favorites. I am a massive fan of crime/mystery/detective novels.

The library is my first port of call though. When they put their old stuff up for public sale (usually for pennies) I get stuck in. You find some great old stories which the copy has rutted away for years at the back of shelves.

However mine has faced severe cuts and closing down isn't far away

This may be the better of the 2 threads tbf.

I thought I was being a clever c*** replying with the same thing on both threads. Maybe the cider is making me think I'm funnier than I actually am?

Spot on. It's a sad indictment that the way to entice people to walk through the door is free wifi.
