How do you enjoy your collection?

After recently getting back into collecting and buying my first slabs in the past year, I realized I was falling back into buying to collect and shoving everything into boxes. So I spent some time the other day pulling books - especially the slabs - and just taking the time to look at each cover and really enjoy what I had. I love reading comics of course, but I also love the way slabbed books look, and I like to just take the slab and examine it. Do you do the same? Or how do you take the time to enjoy your collection, rather than just filing it away?

I read them (I have like 300-500 still needing to be read), I display them on my wall and try for different themes every couple weeks. I look for books to clean and I am in the process of officially cataloguing every issue so I enjoy my collection lots and I love it!

Sharing with your comic book buddies is what comic book collecting used to be all about and as per another post, a picture is worth a thousand words:  :cloud9:

 

Yep, that's how you do it,😎

I love to dive around in them like a porpoise, and burrow through them like a gopher, and toss them up and let them hit me on the head!

Beat me to it. lol

I pack them in boxes in the basement and twitch at the thought of going down.

i'm nearly the same ... i know what i have and i can easily picture them in my mind when an individual copy is brought up that i have...

but i don't physically look at them hardly at all , they are packed up in boxes and just thinking about how much i have to get rid of someday stresses me out lol

Execute The Purge! I did it and I'm enjoying my collection more. I can access anything quickly. I went from two pallets of long boxes to this...

i know but the new managed payment program for eBay has totally turned me off..... did you ever or do you still sell on eBay since the change ?
