On Friday, I posted regarding the notion of trimming titles from your regular budget. Throughout the conversation that followed, a number of salient points were raised on many sides of the issue. Upon reflection, we thought that it was only fair to pose the converse question.
That is: in the past several months (let’s say, since October, as the big economic freak-out began), have you actually added any books to your regular buying patterns?
We all know that it’s a tough decision to drop a book, but adding one can be perplexing too, particular in the face of a) rising costs or b) potentially needing to drop a book to create space in your budget.
So, let’s hear from you. Is it all subtraction, or have you made some pick-ups as well?
