I couldn't possibly live without my books! (Ok, actually, I could but WHY would I want to?) In my case it was because I became severely allergic to molds of all kinds. Including the kind that lives in books. I used to decorate with shelves of books; loved to browse through old favorites.When I cleared them all out of the house I felt miles better immediately from taking the mold burden off my immune system. For a long time I could only read new books that hadn't time to get moldy yet. This is not mold that a normal person would see or smell, it bothers me before there is enough to be visible. Now I can read library books because they are read often enough to disturb the mold and because I have allergy shots for mold now.I'm finding though that I don't miss having the books around. All the classics (copyright expired) are online now, and most others are in the library. I'm taking some of the free courses from www.bnuniversity.com (Barnes and Noble). I can read Moby Dick and Shakespeare online and don't have to buy or borrow them for the courses. Love that Web!READer99
