I hope no one gets me wrong here, I LOVE my magic books. Richard, you make a good point, and indeed something I alluded to in my first post on this topic. Matt, you also have your reasons for doing things your way, however, yes, I did toss many many books, but the Dingle book? OF COURSE I kept that! Its mainly the other 90% (especially of the CURRENT), books I was talking about! These thoughts also fit into Matt Field's post about being mad as hell. Even the books I tossed would make a nice library for someone, but my library is so perfect without them, and WITH: Bruce Elliot, Frank Garcia, Harry Lorayne, Hugard & Braue, Darwin Ortiz, Juan Tamirez, Dai Vernon, Simon Lovell, Paul Harris, Karl Fulves, Robert - Houdin, Larry Jennings, and such wonderful titles like: THE JAMES FILE, CARD COLLEGE, COLLECTED ALMANAC, SECRETS OF BROTHER HAMMAN, COMPLETE WORKS OF DEREK DINGLE, MAGIC WITH FAUCETT ROSS, CARD CRAFT, etc etc etc! Really now, I'm not even THINKING about what i no longer have...only what I DO have. These, along with so many more, really eliminate any desire for any that have been tossed, no matter WHAT they contain!
