    I always keep all the ebooks that I read. I have amassed close to 10, 000 books from the past 20 years. I haven't read them all - some I downloaded because the title looked interesting, but I haven't gotten to them yet. Do any of you keep the books you've read, or maybe you don't see the need to do so since digital books are so easily accessible?

    I never get rid of any books - ebooks or otherwise - unless somehow I've managed to end up with duplicates (which really only happens with my hardcopies). I've amassed quite a collection but nowhere near the size of yours! I've only gotten into ebooks within the last couple of years though because I used to be very stuck-up about them, haha. I still prefer hardcopies, personally, but I'll get ebooks because they're convenient and usually a lot cheaper.

    Like you Natalie, I have a hard time getting rid of books. Due to downsizing I was forced to give up many, many books. I donated them to the local public library so they would find a good home. I do have a lot of ebooks that I haven't read yet but I think that's the way to go because they take up little space. However, I will always prefer a hard copy over an electronic book.

    I try keep all mine as well, the electronic ones more so than normal ones. I only have so much space I can put a bookshelf up in, but a hard drive can hold so many, that it would be a waste not to hold on to them.

    The couple of times I have deleted any by accident, I usually go and re-download the copy again
