Bookish Thoughts and Feels #7: Multiple Copies

Hi folks!


How's your February so far? Mine's going a bit too fast. But all is going well.

Welcome to another BTaF post. For this post, I'd like to talk about owning multiple copies of books

I've watched a lot of bookshelf tours on YouTube and it seems like owning two, three or four copies of a certain book is normal. And who could blame them really? If they love the book, have the money and the shelf space, that's acceptable I think. Not to mention those beautiful collector's editions.

Personally though, I cannot bring myself to own more than one copy. My dilemma came from the Sarah J. Maas book signing event. Haha! I already own the fist book in US cover, and US edition covers are what I really want to have. But National Book Store (the organizer of the event) only sells the UK edition. :( Now I'll have to buy the UK edition, and just sell the one I already have. I don't want to buy both editions as I think it would be a waste of money. (I'm not rich, folks. Haha!)

So there, how about you folks? Do you buy/own more than one copy of a certain book?

  1. I don't usually own multiple copies. I think I only have two multiples: Gated by Amy Christine Parker (I own a signed hardcover and the other was my very first physical ARC I received) and the other is the third Harry Potter book (one is the american version that matches my collection and the other is a cool UK edition).

  2. I own about 6 copies of the harry potter series (hardcover, original pb, uk pb, new cover pb, kindle and the illustrated first book). I also own 2 copies of the A Song of Ice and Fire series. But those are 2 of my favorites so I don't mind owning more than one copy. I barely own any other books at this point.
