The Death of a Coat

From the Portraits and Landscapes short story collectionIts my turn to get the breakfast. A large yellow melon. Its very symmetrical and as I observe it closely, I begin to notice all the little green lines running down the sides. I am frightened to mark it, of cutting things. The knife hangs poised for a long time glittering over the center. It goes in easily. I thought this would be more difficult. I cut again making a boat-shaped piece that slots easily into my hand. Now to scrape off the seeds, but I dont want to lose the sweet center. Those pointed caramel bits falling into the garbage mesmerize me. At last, its ready.The seeds cling more firmly to the next piece. Some of the center is lost, and Im unhappy. It hurts like an imperfect story which everyone admires; they dont understand how much it irritates you every time you look at smudged words.He comes out from the shower with wet hair, and his lips are cool against my neck like a walking ice cream. He sits down and eats. He doesnt know how difficult I find it to present him with such perfection. Even with the coffee Im careful to put just the right amount into the coffee maker, he has this ability to detect my tiniest mistakes. A grain or so more shouldnt make a difference to our relationship, but sometimes it will surround him with an aura of displeasure. I can tell whether he finds the coffee good by his smile, his lips stretch a little wider when hes pleased with me.

·RELATED QUESTION

Is there a service through which you can legally make a custom book collection out of copyrighted material?

To reply to the first Q: not that I know of.

Printing services will not touch copyrighted material. They can get into huge trouble.

The second-- you must be VERY hard on books when you read them!

Third, the cost is prohibitive, even if you take them all down to the local Kinkos. The cost of doing that per book is greater than just buying a spare copy and keeping it in a plastic storage bin out in the garage.

There is a time factor as well if you scan and copy each page.

And this sounds like something Mr. Monk would do.

I would suggest getting something like a Kindle reader and buy books for IT. You can adjust the font size and stuff.

I don't have one, cause I'm a klutz and would probably drop it.

If you don't like your books being mismatched, then cover the book cases up with a curtain, or maybe you can arranged them by color, like this:

And as a result, youll be able to see how many customers youre loosing to churn.Churn Rate - Lets you calculate the percentage of users who stopped using an app within a given period.Active Users - The active user metric is different from installation and downloads metric because it sees if users are actually using the app on a regular basis rather than just downloading it. These numbers are great for giving you a baseline understanding of your apps growth.Session Interval - This is the time between two consecutive sessions of your app and shows the frequency at which user opens and uses the app. This could be a way to measure the addictiveness because it tells how soon or not soon users are returning to your app.Session Length - Session length is the measure of the time period between the opening and closing of an app by the user, or in between the first activity and the last activity that he performs. More engagement would mean longer session durationsTime in App - This defines the time a user stays on your app. Time in the app is a function of session frequency and session length which tells how long users are staying in your app on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and similar to other mentioned metrics this also helps increase the understanding of the user behavior and app usage patterns.Stickiness - Lets you calculate how often people come back to your app. It allows you measure how the changes you bring into your product impacts your user base.Conversion - If there are any actionable features in your app like signing up, making a transaction, filling a form, giving a review, etc youll want to measure how many users are getting converted to goal target. Thus conversion rate is defined as the percentage of users who perform a set of goals or a specific goal that you want them to perform in your app.Acquisition - The number of users who download your app through specific sourceScreen Flow - See where users are when they exit, and the paths they typically take to get to conversion.There are plenty of app analytics tools, that can allow you to measure your app success.

Entering the Leaky Cauldron and realizing Harry isn't just some common boy, feeling as excited as Dedalus Diggle, as nervous as Quirrel and yet waiting for whats to come next. You can feel Harry's wonder as the bricks melt away with the touch of Hargid's wand (Shhh).Gringotts, the Apothecary, Eyelops Emporium, Ollivanders, Florean Fortescue's, Madam Malkin's, everyplace just seemed amazing and i was frantically designing the shops and the streets in my mind. That's the beauty of reading, visualizing scenes rather than just watching the director's interpretation. Diagon Alley was the first magical place we were introduced to, and it shall always hold a special place in my heart. Hogwarts may be all fancy-shmancy in its castle glory, but Diagon Alley in its hap-hazardous rustling bustling turmoil takes the cake!The concept of Gringotts makes me go Bloody hell! Hagrid surprises everyone with his knowledge concerning stalagmites and stalactites. I so wanted to take the cart ride deep into Gringotts and see the rumored dragon (which one can in a HP theme park in Florida). And the money! Galleons, sickles and the little bronze knuts. 17 sickles to a Galleon and 29 Knuts to a sickle if i'm not wrong. And the goblins, extremely creepy, but goblins! I want beetle eyes at five knuts a scoop. A scoopfull of beetle eyes could be helpful in the most unexpected of circumstances! And the solid gold cauldron. The collapsible telescope. Hagrid's such a killjoy. Curses and counter-curses by Prof Viridian, now that's a handy book to have. I wouldn't mind using the Jelly Legs Jinx on a couple of people i know! We meet all sorts of interesting and important people. Hagrid of course is easy to bump into, but apart from him we also meet Malfoy, Ollivander, Griphook, Quirrel, all who play major roles later. Malfoy shows his true colors as a prick, Griphook i found downright creepy, especially when he relished at the idea of people locked in vaults for ten years! The wand, the magical wand! Everyone was waiting for this part. The wand chooses the wizard. Simply beautiful. JKR described this part with remarkable brilliance, Mr Ollivander and his obsession with finding the perfect wand for each customer of his. I found the Voldy connection a bit too cliche though.The chapter was magic. From the moment Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron till he returns back to the Dursleys, the chapter enchants and amazes. It provides valuable information and is the perfect beginning to the magical journey the seven books take us through!------How do libraries curate their collection?It's a huge topic - I'll focus on weeding, or why libraries keep or retire circulating items in their collections.At least in terms of weeding, technology makes it much easier.Back in the old days, librarians in public libraries had to consult the checkout cards in the pocket in the front or back of the book, coupled with personal memory. Now, most library software lets titles be sorted into lists by "Last checkout date" and/or "Number of checkouts." In this screenshot from 2005ish, the "SimTown" game has circulated 23 times in the year in question (YTDCIRCYear to Date Circulation).n nnnSo, once data is compiled, the following human elements come into play:nGenerally, if a book hasn't been checked out in X number of months or years, it will be considered for withdrawal.If a book has never circulated, and isn't a classic, there's a good chance it will be withdrawn. (Often, though, it turns out the item is missing, and that's why it never circulated.)Classics generally don't circulate well, but libraries feel a responsibility to hang onto them.Duplicate, triplicate, quadruplicate and quintuplicate copies of new bestsellers tend to get withdrawn within months.Books that were purchased as Memorials tend to be kept regardless of circulation statistics.Books that are damaged (falling apart at the spine, vandalized, waterlogged, etc.) get withdrawn and usually replaced.Anything of local interest or written by a local author is retained as long as possible.Multi-volume sets such as encyclopedias are generally being retired in favor of their electronic counterparts. Often libraries in a geographic area will pool their resources to purchase the required license.Technology - such as software like the game in the sample -- and computer/Internet-related books go out of date very quickly. nnIn addition, shelfloads of obsolete items such as videotapes and audiocassettes are (reluctantly) being retired because fewer people have the devices to play them on; old VCRs and Walkmans can't be repaired, or even bought new. Some large libraries, however, still have extensive collections even of vinyl records, along with devices that play them, at least for in-library use.Libraries also aren't ordering quite as many extra copies of the latest by bestselling authors; many patrons who don't want to wait a few weeks for their names to come to the top of the reservation list to read a new bestseller can download it to their devices instantly.Others, I'm sure, can provide details on how technology in particular is changing library curation. This is how it has affected (and not affected) the weeding process.
Why Ill Never Declutter My Book Collection
People tend to be separated into three camps regarding their belongings:Those that keep everything (clutter-hopefuls)Those that keep as little as possible(minimalists)Those that attempt to reduce their belongings (declutterers).Clutter-hopefuls generally have an incredible, almost prophet-like, hope that anything and everything will be useful at some hazy future time, from a broken 1980s camcorder to a scrap piece of baseboard.Minimalists believe that living a minimalist life will free up physical and mental capacity to enjoy other things in life. Enjoying the now is more important that holding on to things for the prospect of future enjoyment.Im someone who falls into the third category: a declutterer.As the years pass and as my family grows, I find myself collecting more and more things, even storing (*gasp) things that are useful or sentimental. In the past 2.5 years Ive moved four times, and each move presents a fantastic opportunity to declutter my belongings.Ive read countless articles on decluttering and watched all the episodes of Tidying up with Marie Kondo. The KonMarie Method presents you with categories to help you organize and tackle the great challenge of decluttering. Ive spent endless hours having internal debates with myself about whether this pair of socks or that old sweater sparks joy.While I agree with most of what the Internet tells you to get rid of, I have a problem with an item that is almost always high up on the list: books.I will never agree to get rid of my books. Let me explain.We live in a digital age. Im sure you can find that book on Kindle.Think of the room youll save!Arent you tired of moving 50 small, but phenomenally heavy, boxes of books everywhere you go?No, Im not tired of it. Physical books add greatly to my life.Growing up with a mother who was an avid reader, my love for books began early. I majored in English Literature, specializing in British Literature and writing my final thesis on Childrens Literature. I eventually went on to get a Masters in speech and language pathology, a field that emphasizes the importance of literacy.Take a moment and hold an eBook in your hand. Now pick up and hold a paperback. I dont know how anyone could argue that the experience is the same.Can an eBook give you the same satisfaction of spine breaking a book? (yes Im one of those inhumane spine-breakers)Can an eBook give you that same well-seasoned musty book smell?Can you get that same satisfaction of being three-quarters of the way through a book with an eBook?I inherited my moms love for reading. I hope that my children inherit mine. I married a man who loves to read and, together, our book collection is far beyond what I imagine anyone from our generation has accumulated. Its a huge pain to move every time, but its worth it. I wouldnt consider getting rid of even one book.Research has suggested that reading a physical book is better for development than reading on a screen, even on eInk screens that mimic a book by absorbing light the way a book page does.Is the experience of physically turning a page not eternally more satisfying than clicking to the next location in a book?As a mother, Ive been thinking a lot about the developmental benefits that come from owning physical books.At two months old, my son already showed immense interest in the bookshelves behind the rocking chair where I feed him. Now Im not saying hes thinking ooo books! Those are interesting! I imagine the vibrant assortment of colors and sizes of the books against the black bookshelf provide an interesting contrast of colors and shapes for him to look at. But the same goes for childrens books when he will be old enough to look through them with us.We dont really think about it, but it takes fine motor skills to turn a page in a book. Now Im sure that if children didnt turn a page in a book, theyd still develop fine motor skills, but Id like to introduce books as young as I can.Some might argue that children are just as interested in a screen as they are in a colorful book, maybe even more. But take into consideration that the AAP (American Academy of Pediatrics) recommends no screens for children under two years old. Screens can have a detrimental effect on language development and development of imagination.Yes, a screen can be a book, but it can be many other things too.A book is just a book. And yet so much more.And that is why Ill never get rid of my books·RELATED QUESTIONI want to start a book collection - hard or soft covers?Hardcovers will last longer than paperbacks, and will be worth more years from now. Aesthetically, they look better on the shelf, although that should not be your primary concern
Short Story in Book Collection About War Machines and Armies Out of Control
The story is "Autofac" by Philip K. Dick. Not in any Elwood anthology as far as the ISFDB knows; you may have read it in the Silverberg anthology Beyond Control. You can read it at the Internet Archive. Here is the Wikipedia page. Here is a quotation from the story:The cylinder had split. At first he could not tell if it had been the impact or deliberate internal mechanisms at work. From the rent, an ooze of metal bits was sliding. Squatting down, O'Neill examined them. The bits were in motion. Microscopic machinery, smaller than ants, smaller than pins, working energetically, purposefully-constructing something that looked like a tiny rectangle of steel. "They are building," O'Neill said, awed. He got up and prowled on. Off to the side, at the far edge of the gully, he came across a downed pellet far advanced on its construction. Apparently it had been released some time ago. This one had made great enough progress to be identified. Minute as it was, the structure was familiar. The machinery was building a miniature replica of the demolished factory. "Well," O'Neill said thoughtfully, "we are back where we started from. For better or worse . . . I do not know."1. need help finding out what my comic book collection is worth?Use Overstreet Price Guide or Wizard magazine Also see if you can get a comic book shop to value your collection, it may cost you but it is worth it like me for insurance purposes2. how should i arrange my book collection?We have tons of books. We have two large bookshelves that we have them mostly organized by subject matter and within the subject matters we organize them by height of the book. I have a friend that went to school for interior design and she helped me get the shelves organized this way. We love it. Where the two corners meet on our bedroom wall, the shelves meet as well. ..if that makes any sense. L. ...kinda like that. Anywho. ..good luck.3. How many novels do you have in your book collection at your house?well, am a neophyte so i have more or less 30 novels ( classics and contemporaries)4. Is it common to reread books that you have read in your book collection?Certainly for me it is.I enjoy rereading books. I do not always learn anything new by doing this, and it is not that I do not remember what I read. It is that I like revisiting the familiar worlds of those stories. They are a comfort to me5. Should a family throw out an extensive book collection that grandfather left behind because the library didnu2019t want to go through the collection?The previous answers have all given good suggestions. I have another one. After you've sold the most valuable ones, another place where you can donate at least some of them. Take them to your local VA clinic, and any other VA facilities. My late wife was a veteran, and we spent a lot of time in VA clinics. Those donated books were a real help during those long waits, plus we took a few home, since we were pretty broke at the time. Later, we would take back the books we would borrowed, along with a number of others from our collection.6. If Thanos had a book collection, what books will he have or had read?I believe that Thanos would anticipate an understanding of the universe that would require scientific, religious, and philosophical perspectives. Besides literature and topics outside the understanding of humans (i.e., Earth), he would likely engage in everything from Plato, Socrates, Nietzsche, Kant, Marx, Hegel, and others. In addition, he likely would have read "Mein Kampf", "The Metamorphosis", "The Human Stain", "Paradise Lost", "Tropic of Cancer", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", and other classics. Of course, the Bile, Torah, Sea Scrolls, and other religious text would be likely7. Is mycomicshop.com a good place to sell my comic book collection?QuakJak is acceptable. yet i will pass even extra. you could no longer get everywhere close to "industry" cost to your comics until eventually you have some severe golden/silver age stuff. eBay is saturated with human beings dumping comics at pennies on the greenback. you would be fortunate to get 25% of cost. comedian shops will basically supply you sort of 25% of cost for what they desire. the only thank you to get on the ingredient of industry cost is to stumble on some genuine stupid guy or woman who does not understand approximately eBay, or can no longer pass to a comedian save while they are having a loopy 50-75% off sale. Sorry, comics are basically a non-money maker. good success.

Is it common to reread books that you have read in your book collection?Yes, it is.After reading a book, I keep it only if I know that I would like to revisit it in the future..It does not mean that I had time/mood to it, though2. book: collection of YA stories by different authors with the central theme of VR and VR suitsThis is "The Web: 2027" by Stephen BaxterIt appears to be something of an anthology, focusing on the misadventures of a group of teens entering a theme-park with Gulliver's travels as the motif3. What can you tell about someone with a large book collection?As a person with a large book collection, I can tell you that it reflects my wide-ranging interests, plus the fact that I am too anal-retentive ever to get rid of a book I own, and it's also a tribute to the number of friends I can count on to help me move4. In which place online is it good to sell a large second-hand book collection?I suggest you utilize a listing service like Fillz or The Art of Books - it will get your inventory up to the major "after markets": Amazon, B&N, ABE, Alibris, Biblio. To get your collection in order I suggest CollectorZ - it has a handy scanner that creates a .csv file that allows you to input where you purchased the book, the condition, and pulls down the book description from multiple sources.5. I'm looking for a book scanner that I can use to convert my paper book collection into ebooks?

How many novels do you have in your book collection at your house?I hav not counted recently... Probably around 1008. I have a comic book collection that I would like to sell. What is the best way to sell it?Do what every other guy with a comic book collection does. Open a comic book store in a run down strip mall and wait for gullible kids who think the price quote books are real to buy them from you9. How do you organize your personal book collection?Well to start with I put all my novels in alphabetical order and in one room along with my poetry books in the same order underneath them, starting with the anthologies.My travel books on individual countries with books on the art and anthropologies of that country, I keep them in continental sections.like Africa, Middle East, Central Asia etc. General travel like Cooks travels I keep in the continent he most visited Australia/New Zealand.My general interest books in alphabetical order, but my 1000 odd cookery books I find the most difficult but in general I keep all my 17th and 18th ones together, and divid up into sections my later ones either by country or into categories if mainly fish, meat, dessert, or baking recipes. my herbals mainly into early and later editionsI also have a general selection of books I can just put my hands on to read ( in my office ) these are usually my latest purchases and general reference books. This lot gets out of hand at times but its all fun!10. How do I store my son's comic book collection so he can easy access to them later?I say the comic box like others above, also keep the box from the sun as the sun will change the colour of any exposed paper
Does Anyone Have the Entire Clique Book Collection?
Yes. I have the entire collection (including summer) Sorry, I am definitely not going to sell them, but try Ebay or Amazon. And also, they sell the whole summer collection as a pack in borders for $39.99 which would amount to less than buying each one separate.1. Is there a book that is a collection of interesting investing stories, such as the 1993 New York Times investing contest? What is an interesting story that you know?There are many books which are collections of interesting investment stories. One of my all time favorites is:Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - WikipediaThis book is thinly disguised fact masquerading as fiction. An annotated version exists linking up the actual events.2. What are some of the best ways to catalog your book collection?forget it...the fun is in their random organization. My books are all over, but I know where one is, if I set my mind looking for it.How can you arrange books in several languages on topics similar?There are too many ways to organize them: that's the problem; th satisfaction is in their disorderly fashion:enjoy!.3. Calling Fellow Readers: How do you organize your books? That is, if you have a book collection at all?we have shelves in our like, second living/family room, and a desktop computer. there are two shelving units, one on each side. one shelf has all our books about gardening and chickens and farmy stuff another is diet books and recipe books then there is many encyclopedia style books, atlasses, field guides (we have a ton of field guides about like every single type of animal and plant LOL) then another is the harry potter books and eragon books and like lord of the rings etc. then another is like, diary of a wimpy kid and captain underpants and some dumb little cartoony elementary school books. then all the childrens picture books like dr suess and stuff and then all my whiney teen novels but then i keep my favorite few books stacked on my desk in my room. that includes: the help yoga for chickens (a yoga book where all the poses are drawings of chickens dont ask lol) pickle things (a picture book about everything in the world being made out of pickles) eat this not that fast food edition and whatever book i am currently reading from the library (its still the book thief right now lol) then a stack of my magazines, mostly, TIME, seventeen, and food network lol.4. Does a person's book collection say anything about their personality?I would say it is someone seeking the truth. At this stage of their research it is leaning towards an agnostic belief system. If this person wanted to gain wider base for his research would recommend some books on the Buddha. Then wind is research towards the brain. Zen and the Brain by James H Austin would be a good book to start. Enjoy your research. Keep an open mind you might be surprised what you find. Describing the personality behind the reader is an interesting question. My own personal opinion is a questioning,intellegnet person. Someone who is unsure of his own belief system and seeking answers to confirm his personal beliefs.Some one about mid stream in seeking the truth. Glen5. Does anyone know where I can find a piano book with a collection of movie/TV theme songs?Ebay is your best bet b/c you can just put in key words. "piano book movie theme" or go to amazon.com and put piano book and the top ones will pop up (P.S. I think Sam Goody's closed down around the time Media Play did) If there is a Mars or Guitar Place or Instrument place check them out.6. Does anyone have the entire Clique book collection?All but three of the summer collection, but I've read all but Alicia. I would suggest Wal-Mart for cheap prices on some, then Amazon.com and Borders/Barnes and Noble.7. How Much Is My Comic Book Collection Worth?Depends on if someone wants those issues Check on ebay for the prices or some of the comic auction sites. There are also many comic auction sites to check out those prices. Incognito comics website is also a good place to check for a whole range of titles and your comics might be listed on their site
New Book: Future Directions in Wellbeing
The Benefit Mindset has made its way into its first academic book!The books forward is by David Cooperrider and the Benefit Mindset is explored in the Chapter Why We Need Positive Education 2.0. The chapter was co-authored with Mathew A. White PhD, Director of Wellbeing at St Peters College.Access the book here >Chapter Abstract: Whats next in well-being? We argue its Positive Education 2.0. The American psychologist Corey Keyes explains, It is often said that our youth is this nations future. If true, then there is too much mental illness to look forward to in the future. Never before have schools received the call to educate a new generation to lead global challenges of such complexity. Notwithstanding Keyes observations, this is a global challenge and it requires a global approach. We need Positive Education 2.0, which is informed by entrepreneurship, innovation and hands-on discovery for young people. We believe in doing this; positive education should now move toward programs that teach innovation through project-based learning teams, in which students will focus on solving real-life challenges.Reference: White, M., Buchanan, A.

Entering the Leaky Cauldron and realizing Harry isn't just some common boy, feeling as excited as Dedalus Diggle, as nervous as Quirrel and yet waiting for whats to come next. You can feel Harry's wonder as the bricks melt away with the touch of Hargid's wand (Shhh).Gringotts, the Apothecary, Eyelops Emporium, Ollivanders, Florean Fortescue's, Madam Malkin's, everyplace just seemed amazing and i was frantically designing the shops and the streets in my mind. That's the beauty of reading, visualizing scenes rather than just watching the director's interpretation. Diagon Alley was the first magical place we were introduced to, and it shall always hold a special place in my heart. Hogwarts may be all fancy-shmancy in its castle glory, but Diagon Alley in its hap-hazardous rustling bustling turmoil takes the cake!The concept of Gringotts makes me go Bloody hell! Hagrid surprises everyone with his knowledge concerning stalagmites and stalactites. I so wanted to take the cart ride deep into Gringotts and see the rumored dragon (which one can in a HP theme park in Florida). And the money! Galleons, sickles and the little bronze knuts. 17 sickles to a Galleon and 29 Knuts to a sickle if i'm not wrong. And the goblins, extremely creepy, but goblins! I want beetle eyes at five knuts a scoop. A scoopfull of beetle eyes could be helpful in the most unexpected of circumstances! And the solid gold cauldron. The collapsible telescope. Hagrid's such a killjoy. Curses and counter-curses by Prof Viridian, now that's a handy book to have. I wouldn't mind using the Jelly Legs Jinx on a couple of people i know! We meet all sorts of interesting and important people. Hagrid of course is easy to bump into, but apart from him we also meet Malfoy, Ollivander, Griphook, Quirrel, all who play major roles later. Malfoy shows his true colors as a prick, Griphook i found downright creepy, especially when he relished at the idea of people locked in vaults for ten years! The wand, the magical wand! Everyone was waiting for this part. The wand chooses the wizard. Simply beautiful. JKR described this part with remarkable brilliance, Mr Ollivander and his obsession with finding the perfect wand for each customer of his. I found the Voldy connection a bit too cliche though.The chapter was magic. From the moment Harry walks into the Leaky Cauldron till he returns back to the Dursleys, the chapter enchants and amazes. It provides valuable information and is the perfect beginning to the magical journey the seven books take us through!------How do libraries curate their collection?It's a huge topic - I'll focus on weeding, or why libraries keep or retire circulating items in their collections.At least in terms of weeding, technology makes it much easier.Back in the old days, librarians in public libraries had to consult the checkout cards in the pocket in the front or back of the book, coupled with personal memory. Now, most library software lets titles be sorted into lists by "Last checkout date" and/or "Number of checkouts." In this screenshot from 2005ish, the "SimTown" game has circulated 23 times in the year in question (YTDCIRCYear to Date Circulation).n nnnSo, once data is compiled, the following human elements come into play:nGenerally, if a book hasn't been checked out in X number of months or years, it will be considered for withdrawal.If a book has never circulated, and isn't a classic, there's a good chance it will be withdrawn. (Often, though, it turns out the item is missing, and that's why it never circulated.)Classics generally don't circulate well, but libraries feel a responsibility to hang onto them.Duplicate, triplicate, quadruplicate and quintuplicate copies of new bestsellers tend to get withdrawn within months.Books that were purchased as Memorials tend to be kept regardless of circulation statistics.Books that are damaged (falling apart at the spine, vandalized, waterlogged, etc.) get withdrawn and usually replaced.Anything of local interest or written by a local author is retained as long as possible.Multi-volume sets such as encyclopedias are generally being retired in favor of their electronic counterparts. Often libraries in a geographic area will pool their resources to purchase the required license.Technology - such as software like the game in the sample -- and computer/Internet-related books go out of date very quickly. nnIn addition, shelfloads of obsolete items such as videotapes and audiocassettes are (reluctantly) being retired because fewer people have the devices to play them on; old VCRs and Walkmans can't be repaired, or even bought new. Some large libraries, however, still have extensive collections even of vinyl records, along with devices that play them, at least for in-library use.Libraries also aren't ordering quite as many extra copies of the latest by bestselling authors; many patrons who don't want to wait a few weeks for their names to come to the top of the reservation list to read a new bestseller can download it to their devices instantly.Others, I'm sure, can provide details on how technology in particular is changing library curation. This is how it has affected (and not affected) the weeding process.
What Are Cheap Ways to Expand My Book Collection?
Oh, tons. Yard sales, especially church & library yard sales. Used bookshops. There are tons of used bookstores that sell their dead inventory for 1-3 cents on Amazon, so you are just paying for shipping. Get yourself a kindle and get on Project Gutenberg and Bookbub and NetGalley and Goodreads. Sign up for Goodreads Deals. And have fun with it!.1. How can I sell my comic book collection?yes u can.can u connect me i can helpu.this is my phone 012500842 i want to buy it2. X-MEN comic book collection help?Here are a few good issues with what you are looking for: -Uncanny X-Men #150 (Reprinted in X-Men Classic #54): Magneto gives the world an ultimatum to cede total political control of the world to him and disarm their weapons, or face the end of all life on earth. Magneto vs. the World, essentially and one of the most awesome displays (storywise) of vintage Magneto (both the world-conquering megalomaniac and the man of conscience). -Uncanny X-Men #161 (Reprinted in X-Men Classic #65): This details Xavier's first meeting with Magneto in Israel and the beginning (and ending) of their friendship. This is really the only major story that involves the friendship between Xavier and Magneto. -X-Men (Vol. 2, also reprinted in the Mutant Genesis Trade Paperback) #1-3: A pretty awesome storyarc by Chris Claremont and Jim Lee with the X-Men vs. Magneto and the Acolytes. -X-Factor #92, X-Force #25, Uncanny X-Men #304, X-Men (Vol. 2) #25, Wolverine #75, Excalibur #71: The Fatal Attractions crossover (collected in a trade paperback by the same name), cigar-chomping fellow known for being the best there is at what he does). -Magneto Rex #1-3: Magneto as the ruler of the mutant country of Genosha. -Uncanny X-Men #269, 274-275 (collected in the X-Men Visionaries: Jim Lee trade paperback): Magneto and Rogue fight for their lives in the Savage Land. Magneto establishes himself as someone not to be trifled with. Most of the trade paperbacks and the individual issues of Fatal Attractions, Magneto Rex, and X-Men Classic can all be affordably found on Amazon by searching for the titles (and the issue numbers in the case of the X-Men Classic issues).3. Why is 'have been seen' used in the following sentence, 'This book is a collection of the numerical questions, which have been seen in the past exams'?My guess is that Navroop is questioning the need for "Have been seen".This book is a collection of the numerical questions, from past exams4. Why is 'have been seen' used in the following sentence, 'This book is a collection of the numerical questions, which have been seen in the past exams'?First of all, there is no comma required in the sentence. The use of the comma is in error. The verb usages, though, are correct. Because the sentence refers to another time frame, the start and finish of which is unclear, the perfect tense must be used. The exams seem to be ongoing, so a verb of completed action, such as past simple, would not be appropriate.5. If Thanos had a book collection, what books will he have or had read?I believe that Thanos would anticipate an understanding of the universe that would require scientific, religious, and philosophical perspectives. Besides literature and topics outside the understanding of humans (i.e., Earth), he would likely engage in everything from Plato, Socrates, Nietzsche, Kant, Marx, Hegel, and others. In addition, he likely would have read "Mein Kampf", "The Metamorphosis", "The Human Stain", "Paradise Lost", "Tropic of Cancer", "For Whom the Bell Tolls", and other classics. Of course, the Bile, Torah, Sea Scrolls, and other religious text would be likely6. Should I buy this persons comic book collection and resell them or not?in case you had a great series or something of an marvelous fee it might desire to finally end up at a close-by comedian shop. a close-by comedian shop close to me had a great fantasy 15 stolen. So each and every comedian shop in country became into on alert for anybody attempting to sell one. yet that could be a actual rarity. uncomplicated to perceive. and probable 5 years later it does not have been that stressful to sell. in case you are speaking approximately subject-loose wonderful Fours or Pokemons or something, you record an coverage declare and take your lumps. i could be shocked if there was not surveilance interior the area.
The Daily Mail Has Claimed That the Duchess of Sussexu2019s Book Collection Is U201cwokeu201d. Do Yo
You would first need to define "woke". Nowadays, it seems to be a stand in for "politically correct" among the type of person who gets upset if you suggest that being white is an advantage in the real world, or that people who are of other ethnicities or religions are just as valuable as they are, or that a person's contribution to society and civil rights should not be dictated by their place of birth, and so on ,and so on - and then cries and calls *other* people "snowflake"1. How much does the entire Harry Potter book collection cost?I got mine for around 130 dollars. It was a boxed set with the original hardcover copies and stickers and stuff inside. It even had carrying straps on the side, for crying out loud!How much does the entire Harry Potter book collection cost?2. how should i arrange my book collection?arrange them by the author name..alphabetically or not up to you...the books do not necessarily have to be arranged vertically.do both vertical and horizontal arrangement where u can read the title of your books..u get more space this way..i did this too..i have a bookshelf which is divided into 8 small square compartments and only 2 are actually being used for fiction books. ..so there's not much space. .the books i am 100% sure i will read again is in one compartment and the rest along with some comics are in the other..i did this and i managed to get extra space for my books with just those 2 compartments..and mind u..one compartment is pretty small..oh to do this, it would be a good idea to follow the size too.3. The Daily Mail has claimed that the Duchess of Sussexu2019s book collection is u201cwokeu201d. Do you agree?Book collection? I have no idea what her book collection is. The Daily Mail is a paper you would have to pay me a lot of money to even pick up, after I had disinfected my hands of course4. How big does someone's book collection need to be before you consider it to be a library?Love some of the answers here, having had to downsize twice, I now have a garage converted into a reading room, not a huge amount of books but they are all sorted into subject type and I have matched the area decor to the type, I have library steps, not the rolling type, which I would dearly love. It's not what I would call a library but the nearest approximation I can make, I should add that I also have magazines etc in the room, so as I say to my mind it is a reading room, rather than a library as there are only about 1000 or so books and no floor to ceiling shelves with a rolling ladder but it makes me happy5. Is there a good app for tracking my book collection?If you have Microsoft Office or one of the free programs that mimic Office then create a spreadsheet. I have done this for years. You can create your own column headings to indicate whether you have read the book, whether it is on your wish list, who the author is, character(s)...or whatever information you wish. Then you can sort by any of the fields to keep things grouped the way you wish. Once you have it like you wish you can then upload it to Dropbox or any cloud service so you have it available when you are at the library or favorite bookstore. It is really simple and you can customize it to suit your own needs6. What is the best way to sell off a comic book collection?you could sell them one at a time or you could sell them as a lot for a fixed amount for the whole set.or you could break it down into specific heroes and comic companies, also try looking into which comics are the most valuable and sell them individually for a fixed price or do the auction thing ebay or whatever. if you have anything good i may be interested email me and let me know what you have.7. Calling Fellow Readers: How do you organize your books? That is, if you have a book collection at all?I used to organize my books in rainbow order, but now I've sold some of my old books and I organize the ones I like from genre. BQ I organize my movie collection by directors last names
Does Anyone Have the Entire Clique Book Collection?
Yes. I have the entire collection (including summer) Sorry, I am definitely not going to sell them, but try Ebay or Amazon. And also, they sell the whole summer collection as a pack in borders for $39.99 which would amount to less than buying each one separate.1. Is there a book that is a collection of interesting investing stories, such as the 1993 New York Times investing contest? What is an interesting story that you know?There are many books which are collections of interesting investment stories. One of my all time favorites is:Reminiscences of a Stock Operator - WikipediaThis book is thinly disguised fact masquerading as fiction. An annotated version exists linking up the actual events.2. What are some of the best ways to catalog your book collection?forget it...the fun is in their random organization. My books are all over, but I know where one is, if I set my mind looking for it.How can you arrange books in several languages on topics similar?There are too many ways to organize them: that's the problem; th satisfaction is in their disorderly fashion:enjoy!.3. Calling Fellow Readers: How do you organize your books? That is, if you have a book collection at all?we have shelves in our like, second living/family room, and a desktop computer. there are two shelving units, one on each side. one shelf has all our books about gardening and chickens and farmy stuff another is diet books and recipe books then there is many encyclopedia style books, atlasses, field guides (we have a ton of field guides about like every single type of animal and plant LOL) then another is the harry potter books and eragon books and like lord of the rings etc. then another is like, diary of a wimpy kid and captain underpants and some dumb little cartoony elementary school books. then all the childrens picture books like dr suess and stuff and then all my whiney teen novels but then i keep my favorite few books stacked on my desk in my room. that includes: the help yoga for chickens (a yoga book where all the poses are drawings of chickens dont ask lol) pickle things (a picture book about everything in the world being made out of pickles) eat this not that fast food edition and whatever book i am currently reading from the library (its still the book thief right now lol) then a stack of my magazines, mostly, TIME, seventeen, and food network lol.4. Does a person's book collection say anything about their personality?I would say it is someone seeking the truth. At this stage of their research it is leaning towards an agnostic belief system. If this person wanted to gain wider base for his research would recommend some books on the Buddha. Then wind is research towards the brain. Zen and the Brain by James H Austin would be a good book to start. Enjoy your research. Keep an open mind you might be surprised what you find. Describing the personality behind the reader is an interesting question. My own personal opinion is a questioning,intellegnet person. Someone who is unsure of his own belief system and seeking answers to confirm his personal beliefs.Some one about mid stream in seeking the truth. Glen5. Does anyone know where I can find a piano book with a collection of movie/TV theme songs?Ebay is your best bet b/c you can just put in key words. "piano book movie theme" or go to amazon.com and put piano book and the top ones will pop up (P.S. I think Sam Goody's closed down around the time Media Play did) If there is a Mars or Guitar Place or Instrument place check them out.6. Does anyone have the entire Clique book collection?All but three of the summer collection, but I've read all but Alicia. I would suggest Wal-Mart for cheap prices on some, then Amazon.com and Borders/Barnes and Noble.7. How Much Is My Comic Book Collection Worth?Depends on if someone wants those issues Check on ebay for the prices or some of the comic auction sites. There are also many comic auction sites to check out those prices. Incognito comics website is also a good place to check for a whole range of titles and your comics might be listed on their site
