6th Edition 40k - Previous editions and old White Dwarfs

The old 40 rule book is dead.
Long live the new 40k rule book

What to do with the outdated 40k rule books, old codexes, and White Dwarfs. What is going to happen to the old much loved and thumbed 5th edition rule book on the 30th June? Its no longer much use. It can't in all honesty be sold except as a curio. It comprises 304 pages of high quality print plus some book marked pages. The same questions apply to the old codexes when superseded and old White Dwarfs. Do they head to the recycling bin. Is there some residual affection for the old book. Is it worth keeping as a hobby reference and if so for how long?

Would you keep it?

None of these question have been answered here as can be seen from from the photos of the shelves in the under stair cupboard.

And that's by no means all of them.

I have several book shelves full of old White Dwarves and oop rule books and army books. I have the space so I keep mine. I like to break out the old White Dwarves and read some of them from time to time. It reminds me of the olden days when a White Dwarf was something you read from cover to cover and not fliped through once and put on the shelf.

Indeed they used to have more substantial content. I have one early one that had plans for building an Ork Gobsmasha and other Ork tanks from plasticard.
