    (Pardon me if this is a repeat comment.)
    I am now trying to think about what I might want to reread or flip through in my 70’s-80’s. My father in law, who’s turning 90 this year has been re reading all his favorite mystery novels over the past few years…
    In earlier decades I took a kind of live for the “now” approach…and now in my 50’s I really wish I’d saved more stuff…
    …but the accumulation of stuff really is a problem for after death..I’d almost say put in a will something about a charity to donate the collection to unless one of the heirs wants them, so that it’s already decided how to dispose of the comics and the grieving heirs don’t have to deal with researching all that.
    i should take my own advice.
    I’m also thinking of making a few boxes that are specifically aimed at my daughter…

      Damian, I hear you in regards to wishing I’d kept stuff. I have spent more money in the last 5 years replacing copies of things that I spent a fraction of the money on then, but for some reason, those old books resonate with me.

      As far as the donation, I really need to think about this. My daughter did say, actually, that I should identify my favorite books to give her, and I’m thinking the rest may go to Madison, or a portion anyway. The rest I could donate, but I don’t know to what or whom just yet. Any recommendations?
