    No. I give them away.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    I give mine away also. I usually buy WW2 books. Always Non-Fiction. Read them and pass them on. I have kept Spear's book and read it three times.

    Same with Shirer's book. I just noticed that The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich came out in a 50th Anniversary edition. I may pick it up. Remember, those that forget are condemned to repeat.

    I bought Mrs. U a kindle one year in my never-ending desire to please and surprise her at her birthday or for Christmas. She loves it and is on her third, I think.

    I have about a dozen. At this moment I have 6,394 Kindle books. I have around 10k PDFs. I am slowly converting the PDFs to Word. Then I will correct and annotate them. As a last step I will convert them to dot mobi or dot azw.

    Then I will die.

    LOL. Project Gutenberg does an acceptable job on old books. I did not include them. Let me log on to Calibre and count up those books. 3,451 books. There is some overlap.

    I still have thousands of paper copies of old documents from the 1970s and 80s on the soviet WwII perspective. I tossed out almost all of them.
