Too much bolding
The first paragraph of the article has tons of bolded text. Normally this doesn't bother me, but every single sentence in the paragraph has at least one word bolded, which gets to be a distraction. Anyone mind if I remove some of the bolding? --Dr. WTF 02:11, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
- Not only do I not mind, I just did it. :) It was obnoxious! Aleta 07:44, 3 March 2007 (UTC)
I have added the disputed tag regarding the discussion on people abandoning books when some IBM screen arrives on the market. This is surely nonsense. rem120
- I agree with you, about the IBM screen. Part of the love of books is through the actual object, the book. The covers, the pages, the texture, print, smell, etc. Salanth
- Agreed, when I read the part about the IBM stuff I instantally thought, B.S. [allranger]
- Hmm. I must say I wonder why that part hasn't been thrown out a long time ago. Oh well, now its done. Greetings from a guy who loves books and hi-tech. No need for a schism there. :-) --Wernher 03:21, 16 Apr 2005 (UTC)
Well I reading love books, but can't stand the feel of the paper... and the annoyance of trying to hold down a page/reading text next to the spine. If it wasn't for the glare I'd happily read books on the net all the time instead. Haha, I'm such a freak. ~ Francesca
You're a freak? I have gigabytes of books in many different formats for the PC. (as well as many real books.) Adjust your brightness and contrast levels correctly and you'll have no trouble reading from a CRT. I see nothing freakish about it, computers manipulate media quite readily, text is no exception!

But is it a lifestile? see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_lifestyles
I believe it is most defenitely a lifestlye. Book collecting is an addiction and literally takes over a life. --Da Kidd 14:17, 25 April 2006 (UTC)
Bibliophily vs. Bibliophilia
People of think that the latter is correct - and therefore, perhaps it is.
The Read or Die and Private Sheska links seem out of place. Maybe they should be removed?
Merge into Book collecting?
I agree with Stan's "Redundant article?" comment above, and recommend this article be merged into Book collecting. I plan to edit that article, and will probably begin to edit and move some of this page over. -- Mukrkrgsj 02:22, 17 April 2007 (UTC)
Some corrections required
- Not sure why the 'profile' section is so named, nor why it is in quotation marks and starts with a lowercase letter.
- What is the purpose of all the Library of Congress data tacked on to the end of this article?

I'm rather surprised that no one bothered to included it or define it in the opening paragraph. Will someone please come to the plate? --Ludvikus 02:15, 25 September 2007 (UTC)
Standard work, Classic, Definitive study
The first of these is currently under consideration for deletion. Can one and all please drop by a put his, her, or their two cents in before the standard works are wiped out? Now do I have your attention? --Ludvikus (talk) 00:54, 25 April 2008 (UTC)
