Hi guys, welcome to Book Munchies’ Musing about Things: A Discussion (Post). Inspired by memes such as Should Be Reading‘s Musing Monday & Caffeinated Book Reviewer‘s Caffeinated Confessions (etc.), this is a Book Munchies discussion post, where I’ll be rambling about (mostly) book-related things and hopefully you guys will join in on the fun too (:
So today’s topic is: Do you own multiple copies of the same book?
So this came up when I was shopping for books and I was super tempted to buy another copy of Pride and Prejudice (even though I already own two copies) because I loved the Vintage Penguin Classic cover. And I thought to myself, can I really justifiably buy another copy even though I have one? And my decision was: no, I’m unfortunately too broke for this (at the moment). But duuude, when I have money, I’ll own all the copiessssss!!
I think it’s more with the classics, but I’m always tempted to buy multiple copies because they keep releasing all these fabulous new covers (and I probably will when I have a real job, ha.)
And it’s not always just classics that tempt me to buy doubles. As you know, sometimes and US version and the UK version of books are different but both equally pretty, so how do you resist not getting both?!? Oh and than when special/collector’s edition comes out but you already bought a normal copy, do you buy another one? Why book publishers, why! Why do you tempt me so!?!?
I really think the only thing restraining me is my lack of funds, ha.
So are you one for owning multiple copies of the same book? Do you need all the versions!? (I think I would if I really loved that book.)
Is it mostly classics or whatever catches your fancy?
