It might have to do with the nature of the type of books I read.Interestingly I do not seem to have the same condition with relation to my book collection.
I only ever read them once but I stil keep them (collect?). I have never read a book twice in my life I don't think.
I still think it is important to keep them just in case I may need to reference them in some capacity despie how unlikely that is ever to occurr.
I do to a lesser degree maybe select a book to read from my mood but it is less extreme than when I decide to watch a film.
Most of my "pleasure reading" are highly technical books with equations and difficult to understand explanations. So most of the time I am going through passages (or chapters) from several books, and sometimes working out some of the technical details with pencil and paper to understand the explanations.
