Tuesday Thingers

Today's question: Work multiples. Do you own multiple copies of any books? Which ones? Why? Can you share your list?
I have to say I do own multiple copies of books in my collection. They are:



Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone.
Original Copy - Children's Paperback
Second Copy - Adult Hard Cover

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
Original Copy - Children's Paperback
Second Copy - Adult Hard Cover

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Original Copy - Children's Paperback
Second Copy - Adult Hard Cover

The reason for this was 1) the paperbacks are wearing out after so much reading, 2) When I got Deathly Hollows I got the Adult Hard Cover edition. So I want the collection to match. I also wasnt all hard covers, because they last longer the the paperbacks. They also look nicer. So thats why I have the first three Harry Potter's. I will eventually get Adult Hard Cover editions for Goblet of Fire, Order of the Phoenix and Half Blood Prince. But Alas, no money.

I also have double copies of The Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Rings, Lord of the Rings the Two Towers, Lord of the Rings The Return of the King and The Hobbit. I had originally, the copies of LOTR in those blue green and red covers with the mountians and shadows of the characters. I now have the black covers. Whish is also my reasoning for havign to Hobbits. I searched and searched for the elusive black cover for the hobbit and coudln't find it. I gave up and bought the green blue cover of the hobit. Few weeks ago, found that cover of the hobbit. So now my Hobbit, Lord of the Rings books, Simerilion, and other Toliken books both present and futrue will all have those nice black covers.

So mainly I have multiple copies of books, because I collect books I like, and want to have a certian set for certain books. I may have two persuations, sense and sensibilties, but those second copies may be sold to a book store when I get the edition of the book I want. The HP books I have, Ihaven't decided what I'll do with them, same with my Lord of the Rings. Both are very worn from multiple over reads.

P.S I recenrlty found out you can only have 200 books on Library Things, then you have to pay for an account.... I am not happy. Only 200 books? They build me up, I finally start like using it, then they say, sorry your at your limit.

  2. Oh - I forgot - I also have duplicates of Gone with the Wind! One was HUGE, and one was smaller. . .

    I didn't know that LT had a limit on the number of books you could post! Yikes!! I'm far from 200 though. :)
