@zzombie13: You should just but a little bookshelf or drawer just for books.
I appreciate the suggestion. But my house is full of junk. My junk, my daughter's junk, my family's junk.
Collecting at this point is more stressful than joyous since I just don't have the space for (yet another) big white comic storage box. I quit collecting in the mid 90s after everything kinda crashed down around itself. I still read plenty of them, still even buy an occasional book, I just don't collect anymore. I read them, then give them to my best friend's nephew or one of my daughter's friends.
Or, thankfully, now we have digital which is perfect for someone like me who loves the fiction, but is no longer interested in the collecting hobby side of comics.
