CD Collection...

I got my first cd when I was in high school (prior to that I had been a big devotee of the cassette). My dad bought it for me- it was the Rolling Stones Hot Rocks two cd set (quickly followed by Madonna's Immaculate Collection). While in college I began to amass a large cd collection thanks to multiple memberships in BMG and Columbia House. Oh, what you could get for a penny!

Many years later, I have a rather large collection of jewel cases cluttering up my family room storage cabinets and I no longer own a proper CD player. Thanks to that nifty little device called an iPod, I really don't need all of these anymore... so I'm planning to whittle the collection down to its most basic. Keep all the stuff that's really great, download everything else and see what I can get for it. What do you think?
