Yeah, I love the internet's ability to reduce clutter in my home. Although my parents, who are internet savvy, don't seem to think that's any reason to curtail their clutter collections. My mom would enjoy an ebook, I'm sure (and I do love my kindle), but I know my dad wouldn't see any reason to give up his stacks. The vast majority of his books are probably out of print, which may be part of why he thinks he needs to hoard them. But, honestly, who wants an out-of-print edition of a dictionary? Besides my dad, I mean.
It's not a logical thing.
