 You might need those old journals in the basement if the supply of TP runs out.  (Maybe that's where the free book tables went...)

On the subject of books the Internet Archive currently has untrammelled 
access to its 1.4 million book library [1].

Many gardening books including at least one by an alumnus of this list.

I can see how opening the library is controversial but it is a chance to 
see things and perhaps buy in the future.

I've collected books and technical magazines and I now have a load of 
rotting brown paper - it was a pleasant surprise to recently find many 
of the magazines available in digitised form - pointed out the folly of 
keeping paper.

Less happy to find all the supermarkets had removed the book swop tables 
in times BC (before crisis)).

Internet Archive has a scheme where one can sponsor books for digitisation.

Point being digital is the future, books are a fungible commodity.
