What is Spotify?

Then that makes two of us.

I just ordered two older CDs online - both of them are used but in very good condition. I ordered them to play on a CD player for my mom, who has dementia. They are music that she likes, but I couldn't find some of it online at all, and as for the other one, it was online but she doesn't have a bluetooth speaker at her facility. I'd rather just take a CD player up there and leave it and then bring a few CDs to play for her.

If I can't download it I will buy it eventually.

Books for me. I typically read 2 at a time, alternating between them, and I read a lot of everything.

I've sometimes thought of buying a digital reader, but I do like reading a book- they need no batteries, and they'll never disappear on the internet. I purge my collection once in a while, but I'll always have stacks of them around the house.

No, I very rarely buy any cd's, movies, or books. I get my music off a service, my movies off of Netflix, and for books I use my Kindle.

You could be my kid.

I'd rather curl up with a book than a Nook.

I still buy DVDs, CDs, magazines, & a book here & there because I like having the tangible items in my possession. Stored away online somewhere in my mind means it could be wiped out if electronic things go haywire.

I hope Barnes & Noble NEVER closes. I'm still mad about the closings of Blockbuster, DVD Planet, Second Spin, Suncoast, & Borders. FYE mostly has pop culture shirts & other junk & much less DVDs.

Even the DVD section of Walmart hasn't been the same in the last FEW MONTHs. The shelves are more empty all the time.

I buy physical CD's and sometimes DVD's when I'm in Japan because they literally don't exist on the internet. Anything else I just buy online. Japan still has Tower Records bby~

Fleamarkets, library book sales, Goodwills, Salvation Army, and Savers are but a few places to pick up on used media(from vinyl to cassettes to Blu Ray and all in between) at a fraction of new $retail. You have been notified. Get crackin' and start building up that collection before they're gone!
