Which light novel raws do you have at home?
I'm simply curious, if anyone is buying the raws of light novels (for example, if you really like a certain title and you totally want to have this series in your shelf). If so, which ones?
Uhhh, I think I'm the only one who does that, but I do own a few light novels. But I didn't really buy them for collectings sake (maybe just a tiny bit), but because I really, really like especially those series. Funny enough, they've all got already mentioned in the subcategory 'Licensing Discussions!'. The sequence in which I bought them, should be like this:
- Sugar Apple Fairytale 1-17 (Complete)
- Musketeer Rouge 1-9 (Complete)
- Hakushaku to Yousei/Earl and Fairy 1-33 (Complete)
- Accomplishments of the Duke's Daughter 1-8 (Complete)
Well, these are the only ones I currently have and which are really, really special to me. There are others I like to read, but not enough for me to buy the raws, so I will stick to their english versions, if there are any.

Just the 2 first volumes of Grimgar, I buy them partly for collection but also as a motivation to learn Japanese. Turn out it's way too difficult so instead I've buy the raw for Ill boy Ill girl cause the furigana and picture make it a bit easier.
But I've to say, the japanese version are kinda desapointing, I know they're mean to be cheap but still.
At least for Grimgar, Sevens Seas version is so much better than the jap.

I have around 20 vols of Mahouka, the whole Toradora series, OreImo, Kono koi to sono mirai, and some other volumes I don't remember. They were dumped on me by my friend, and I still have to put them in a cardboard box because my shelf is full of translated novels already.

None, but I no longer buy any paper books and am slowly getting rid of the stacks of boxes full of books that I already own.
I understand the collecting impulse, but I've rejected it as using up too much space :)
I'm in the same boat, I have many books - and am in the process of culling down to ones that have a specific sentimental value (signed by a favorite author? someone I met? sparks memories of a outing/trip?), or significant for possible future lending to friends/family, or the like
I'm buying all the bookworm raw on Kindle from amazon.com. TO Books, the publisher of the bookworm is rare among the Japanese publisher to publish their Japanese e-books outside of Japan. I've been asking other publisher too whenever I get a chance, but so far, no other publisher is able to do that.
Not even other LN publishers.
