1/ Some people find that less coins of certain periods that a digital book is good enough.
2/ As #1 for some buying a huge expencive libary isn't interesting.
3/ Digital books do great.One can easily build a digital libary of hundreds of detailed books and cataloques.
4/ Some books simply aren't on the market or go up to £500 each and otherwise wouldn't have available.

I think you'd be surpriced how many info is available for free digitally. -=+:-P
Some (parts off) pages from the books to get an idea. Click for slightly larger image.

Don't misunderstand me. I totally agree. I like that too and have lots of physical books.
But to buy all those which you only need once and a while will be a highly expensive library.
25 and up each nice book? And then a few up to 500+ each. Some aren't for sale anymore. And then if one has a library of about 200 books? Who can afford that?
Man, i have kids to feed an cloth. I need vacation once and a while. Need money for petrol to hunt. Hunting is my hobby. Not "building a library". :D

They don't offer for free for nothing www.academia.edu
Spreading knowledge! Nothing wrong with that.

(and be honest, simply buy those wonderfull books you use regular)
Good luck hunting.

Got that clear already some earlier, after posting this. So sorry.


But small point off constructive criticism, the topic full of links in the link above has many broken or incomplete links. Could need some maintenance.
Good luck hunting.
