Yes, I know that I might easily find the things that are not included in my CD-Rs and download them as mp3 files. But I've never been much into digital files. I know many people who have hard drives full of songs, films or books, most of which they've never heard, watched or read, and they never will. I prefer to have less things, but have them in a tangible format, and really enjoy them. Even if I decided to transfer all those mp3 files to CD-Rs, which are tangible, I'd be missing the information on the back cover and/or the booklet. Which I might probably be able to download somewhere, too. But I feel too lazy about all that, so I prefer to buy the CDs, if I can afford them. If not, it's a matter of saving up until I can.
