If you have not started collecting books yet, here is a list of several good reasons to start:
Old books are like links to the past. They provide you with insights into the beliefs, ideas, and thoughts of people from previous eras and generations. An old book is like a piece of history that you can preserve by keeping it in your library and sharing it with future generations.
Scarcity and rarity
Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer old books every year. The number of unique antique books keeps decreasing because of natural disasters, wear and tear, wars, etc. For this reason, the scarcity and rarity of surviving antique books keep increasing. This all makes old books a great and valuable investment.
Antique books are always in trend
Many collectibles go in and out of fashion, but antique books are not like that. They always have their timeless charm and personality. For this reason, the demand for old, rare, and valuable books remains constant.
Collecting rare and antique books brings personal satisfaction and happiness. Nothing can be compared to the thrill of the chase of a rare book and the satisfaction of nabbing a unique copy. Most book collectors would agree that collecting antique books is one of the most rewarding and enjoyable hobbies. Also, the wisdom and knowledge you gain from unique books is absolutely priceless.
