I also have experienced the "spousal" form of burnout. For me, though, it has come in the form of,

"You spent how much on those books?!?!"

The resulting guilt has led to things like,

"Don't worry, honey, I'll sell some other books to make up for the new ones."

So goes my collecting experience. The collection grows and grows until it hits a (usually financial) breaking point, then it retracts. After a while it continues to grow again. It's almost like a living thing, hopefully improving with age. It isn't altogether a bad system. My collection stays relatively modest in size, but I feel it has become higher quality.

You are right, Rowns, you will never get everything, but that is part of the beauty of it. There is always room for improvement and growth, which is what keeps a collector going. Now, help me come up with an excuse/explanation for that 1982 Super Deluxe Silmarillion I need to buy!

Exactly the same as the sticker on my Silmarillion Trotter!

Whoops, sorry Hyarion,

Andrew told me in an email that he had entered that data on TolkienGateway and I was welcome to reuse it, and I probably got more than intended. My apologies!

Hmm, some of those entries look strikingly similar to some that I typed up :p Oh well, no point in typing them twice. I'll let you know if we get up anymore that you're missing.

Keep up the good work,

I forgot to post this before but the sticker is light not dark blue. I think I must have a problem with colours, see my post on the jacket of The Silmarillion. This looks to be the same as the sticker on Khamul's Silmarillion (see scan)
