I think most of us probably have a collection of guidebooks, but I'm interested in how many climbers enjoy collecting mountain books of all kinds for the sake of it. I know of several climbers who have amassed pretty impressive collections over the years including some real gems. My own library isn't huge (and is hugely disordered!) but I've started to sense that, for me, the pleasure of collecting books has eclipsed the practical need for the information they contain...
Is this a common phenomenon amongst climbers? What are your favourite climbing books you have collected?
My overall favourite is probably "Mountaineering in Scotland" by W.H.Murray.
