For me it largely depends on who paid for the books. Books which I have bought for myself, I will read first at home, and then usually label up and leave at work on my desk. Books which are paid for by work I usually read at home, and then eventually take them back into the office, by which time everyone thinks they were bought by me.

I have a complete set of Visual C++ Manuals (version 1.0 I think) that I keep in my loft. It's sometimes nice to flick through the pages rather than try to read stuff on-line, even though they are old, but they take up a lot of room, and weigh too much to carry around.

Mmm, why the heck am I keeping them? Does anyone want them?
