We were in Atlanta, Georgia a couple of weeks ago and kept seeing signs for "Turner Field" and we were thinking what is this dude doing now?!?

In "Pitch perfect 2" there's a bedroom scene with a Frank Turner "Tape deck heart" poster in the background.

I decided to save my fan edition as a keep sake, so bought the book digitally. When searching another Frank Turner Book popped up, European intellectual history.....for a moment I thought he'd published his thesis....but unless he is moonlighting as a lecturer in America it's not him. Or is it?!

As in...not read it? This idea never occurred to me. Does "unread" add value to a book? (This is a genuine question, as I know unplayed makes a record more desirable)

I'm still waiting to see if I can get a new sleeve for my fan edition as the cover was all creased when it was sent.

Yeah, the preacher man always threw me off back then when I was a newbie fan and googled Frank a lot :-)

Yes, as in not read it, it wasn't my idea, my husband piped up that if I damaged the book I would be devastated. Bugger all to do with value, collections what ever.

I think an unread book is kind of sad. I picture them on the shelves in bookstores just waiting for someone to take them home.

Apologies Evan, I think I sounded grumpy and rude in my response on reflection, didn't mean to.
Yes, basically the better a rare books condition the more valuable it becomes over time. Just like unopened, unplayed records.
But my reason for not reading this book is about me being inherently cack handed and clumsy. Plus my hands are now riddled with arthritis and my pain meds make my hands twitch so knowing me I would drop my book down the loo or something equally galling.
I personally feel books in general are there to be loved, read and kept. Like papery old friends.
My husband used to work in a specialist high fi shop and has a collection of unopened, unplayed records, which to me is unfathomable. Sitting lonely on a shelf for 26 years feels wrong to me somehow. The records that is, not my husband!

I do understand this - I collect books (kind of) I like to read them and do not need (nor can I afford) first editions or any of that nonsense.... I just don't have the money....

but I have a couple of gaps in some of my collections and part of my challenge is to fill them for less than a fiver per book.... which may take forever ;-) but for me part of the joy is the search.

I recently found a book I needed for 75p (zero pounds, seventy five pence) and got home and looked it up online... the cheapest I could see it available to buy was £25 (twenty five pounds sterling) and it did not look in as good condition as the one I had just bought. (I would NEVER pay £25 to fill a gap... thats about the price of four local gigs - maybe five, or a decent gig at a larger venue!) the most expensive was £125... utter madness.... and that listing has been there for over two years and the book still hasn't sold - can't think why.... ;-)

I didn't buy it because it might be worth something in money - I bought it to fill a gap in my collection.

I know if I ever needed to sell my books, in spite of the above, I probably would not get very much for them, especially if I needed to sell them in a hurry as the price you are able to sell for, very much depends on demand - and if I'm selling in a hurry to raise cash, there is no guarentee that it wil be at the exact moment that someone is desperate to buy an obsure referance book :-)
