Yes, I'm a bookworm, I inherited it.
LOL, true, but when the books are worn, used and several years out of date the value does go down. Heck, if I buy a book new for $10 then try to sell it even a year or two later, the value goes down.
There are only two rules at my house: House rule #1. Cats rule. House rule #2. See rule #1.
