I was mail-ordering records from Germany – stuff I never expected to find in the US; also buying a few used Japanese domestic CD’s inexpensively.  I can see a trip or two to swap meets.  I even see some eBay!  Looks about like I only bought approx. 3.2 records per day of September 2002!  And I am still buying Beatles’ CD’s for the first time!

    Yes, it was a slow September 2002 for Ron with only 111 titles coming into the collection that month. A scant 3.2 titles per day! In comparison, 2018 was an all-time high for me with 235 titles… or about two slow months for Ron! A pathetic ration of slightly less than two titles every three days!
