PAPER BOOKS I STILL OWN RANKED BY HOW LIKELY I'D BE TO GRAB THEM IF MY HOUSE CAUGHT FIRE

I got my first kindle maybe 5 or 6 years ago and began buying mostly eBooks. Then I started replacing my paper books with eBooks and slowly got rid of them all. Here are the ones I kept.
  1. 1.
    The Where the Sidewalk Ends my wife (@mamiecoffey) gave me when our first child (@imc) was born. Complete with beautiful inscription.
  2. 2.
    My original childhood Giving Tree.
  3. 3.
    My very beat up signed Hocus Pocus by Kurt Vonnegut.
    My mom took me to see him speak in Indianapolis when I was in high school and then when I was too shy to go ask for a signature, she insisted.
  4. 4.
    This special edition Giving Tree my wife gave me.
    I also own the eBook Giving Tree because sometimes you just need a quick read while you're away from home.
  5. 5.
    The Oh, the Places You'll Go! my mother gave me when I graduated from high school.
    Cliche? Yes. Special to me? Yes.
  6. 6.
    Every print edition of my book.
  7. 7.
    @ChrisK's Letters to JD Salinger.
    I actually have two of these because I bought one and he gave me one.
  8. 8.
    @ChrisK's daughter's comic book, signed.
    I think I was her first customer. A steal at $2.
  9. 9.
    Diary of a Dead Man by John Chessman
    Maybe this is on the lowdown but John Chessman is @ChrisK. He was experimenting with print-on-demand services and self publishing and put this book he wrote in high school up there just to see how the layout, printing, and purchasing process worked. I of course immediately bought it before he was done testing and took it down. I think he was kind of annoyed.
  10. 10.
    [everything from here down is a tie because they are totally replaceable.]
    Just readily available books that don't have an eBook version.
  11. 11.
    Harold Bloom's amazing The Invention of the Human.
    I will buy this in eBook form the moment it comes out because I hate hate hate carting this giant clump around.
  12. 12.
    This collection of personal accounts of the Haun's Mill Massacre.
  13. 13.
    Flawed Texts and Verbal Icons
    Fascinating and way over my head so I only work on it when I am very undistracted.
  14. 14.
    The Ghost World comic book.
    Comic books aren't so great as eBooks.
