    Pretty much the same. I have majority of all the books and guides and RPG sourcebooks. Just now getting into the comics, the Omnibus' are great. I've got mine currently stored in plastic tubs, as my bookshelves are overflowing, mainly with non-SW stuff. Amazon.com is a real weakness of mine :)

    I need to invest in at least two new bookshelves...

    There are at least 20 Star Wars books included in that last image. Maybe more, I've lost count, and definitely more to be added.

    OMG! I gotta get one of those! I didn't know that Lucasbooks have actually created a biological reading villip, ala the Yuuzhan Vong! Is it available in all good book stores, or only available for online purchase?

    Here's my Sci-Fi/Fantasy folder. I do still read real books made out of paper quite often, but the only SW books I've read in the past year and a half have been in eBook form (save for Han Solo and the Lost Legacy, of which I found an original paperback version at a flea market). I'll probably download Fool's Bargain soon, but otherwise I don't foresee any SW books being added to this folder in the future. It's all over!

    This was in April 2012, but since I am selling off my non-fiction books (not those including timeline/story-info, though, only the making of-/art of-kinda books)

    I also have a select few books back home in storage. I donated nearly my entire collection to a women's shelter last year (since I get the same question every time: sometimes they bring their kids), keeping only Zahn's nameless trilogy, the entire NJO, and a few other standouts. But since I've adapted to a nomadic lifestyle and am never going to reread them anyway, they'll probably get the shaft next time I'm in Canada. Even now, I give away books after I finish reading them. Who has time to reread when your to-read list is always like a hundred books long?

    *is too embarrassed to show off collection*

    Maybe trips to my awesome local used book store will allow me to proudly show off come December! My collection had to shrink.....

    a_g posted what I was going to post already.

    I think the only "collection" in my kindle larger than my Star Wars folder is my classics folder, and that's mostly because having to re-buy books I already own physically drives me up a wall. It was like, what, 60 bucks for the X-wing series? ugh!

    The only books I've re-bought in e-format are the Harry Potter series, and that's only because I re-read them every couple of years and because I wanted to put them on my son's Kindle.

    Like I stated on a previous post, it is a Yuuzhan Vong biological reading device.

    My collection is pretty much the same except I don't have the cat.

    I would post a picture, but most of my collection is back home in Charleston. My collection here in Motown consists of Traitor, the next 3 books we are reading for 181st, ToTJ vol. 1, the Atlas and Warfare, and ASOIAF, the last four books of Malazan, and a bajillion history/archaeo textbooks (mainly Mediterranean).

    I'm so jealous of some of these collections. Especially the ones full of comic trades.
