Yes I am still collecting according to a well-rehearsed routine that I've developed since I first contributed to this site. Approximately every quarter, I visit a few second hand shops. I buy up every copy of Nat Geo on their shelves, at an average 40c/copy. When I get home, I compare them with my collection and weed out any duplicate poorer quality editions. I then complete the cycle by returning these to my local Red Cross bin. Then I can enjoy reading the new ones I've acquired. My current collection list is attached - there are many gaps. How did you build your complete collection?
