lots of posts against physical collections

In every post where someone is talking about their physical collection, a group of people always pop up calling them consoomers or disparaging their collections as useless. Then they go on to shill ereaders and other digital forms of reading. Is this just poorgay cope or is there something to it?

    I make posts like that but my problem is with fetishizing books in general. e-reader gays are worse because they hoard hundreds and hundreds if not thousands of books that they will never read.

    e-reader gays dont realize that rich people dont consider its expensive and just buy things they like and the only people who hyper focus on it are poor morons

    I have a physical collection but have been thinking of getting an ereader. For me personally, I like to live minimally and appreciate a minimalist style - books are the only thing I have a decently large collection of,

    It’s sour grapes. We all know times are tough and not everyone can afford their own living space nor their own library. It’s anons impotently lashing out at their own poverty subconsciously

    Having a physical collection is a performative exercise. Being performative is a femenine trait. Those who own e-readers are the real readers, because what you're getting is the book in its purest form.

      I started seriously cultivating my library after online retailers started removing "problematic" merchandise from their stores. I figured it was only a matter of time before anything that wasn't featured on the Oprah book club would become prohibitively costly or hard to find.
      That hasn't quite panned out as radically as I had feared it would but in no way does my library exist as a "performative exercise".

      I own a computer (PC) and read 16-18 hours a day. I do not need to stop for charging. I just read 18 hours a day. I've been doing it since 2015. If I stop reading I feel very anxious. It's not defined by what you own. You are just guerilla marketing for ereaders.

        I also work. I work nonstop when I'm reading. If I am not working hard or reading I feel restless. In my car I listen to audiobooks or podcasts. I was a NEET until 2021. I still read 18 hours a day on my days off.

      Imagine being so poor that you can’t even afford to indulge femininity for the sake of beauty.

    But it is indeed true that folio collectors are worse than the funko-pop people.

    Library chads, where we at??? I pity the fool that has an understocked library with more hobos than books. My library is 5 floors and filled to the brim.

    The same thing happens now with Bibles if you bring up a KJV or any of the culturally conservative tagged translations (D-R, ESV, NASB, NWT, Amp). They are perhaps trying to get you hooked on a future subscription model of the latest (bi-yearly) NRSV-NUE.x. They are trying to convince you that the possessions you cherish are no better than garbage, and you can't trust your own brain either. You will own nothing and the New World Order will control everything that passes before your senses, and they're going to make us BEG for it. First step is to alienate and then eliminate those who will be stubborn about it.

    I threw away half of my library a few weeks ago, and plan on throwing the other half once I've reread the books. Physical books are pointless, take up too much space, no one cares and most people will just think you're a loser

      What are you storing in the space that had been taken up by books? Personally my roof and walls leak heavily and flood about 3/5s of my home every time it rains, so I have to do a lot of intentional zoning. I own 22 well-loved books and they only take up roughly 2.5ft x 1.5ft x 3ft. I have many tubs just sitting around to catch rain that are larger than that.

          Well you shouldn't do that. Your belongings will be the only thing they have left from you, and their significance will be much more glad for them the longer their lives go on without you.

    I could understand comparing Folio books to funko pops if the books were badly. You aren't suppose to collecting Folio. inb4 I don't collect folio.

    Both have positives and negatives and it all mainly comes down to the individual. Ignore posts about vanity blah blah this and consuming blah blah that. Those display some sort of projection or psychological complex.

    Ereaders are much less tedious when moving and can be read in the dark but I don’t like the idea of my books running out of battery. I know, I know, I know they have good battery life, I’ve heard all about it again and again and again, the idea just makes me sick. Furthermore I comprehend information better from a physical book. Also flipping to a page in a book for purpose of rereading or citation is smoother and quicker than scrolling or typing in a page number on a screen.

    i like ereaders because it's convinient to check the built in dictionary when reading in another language. Anglos dont understand this of course, on top of being the biggest consoomers
