I voted other.

Your poll is missing the "I want my $900 back" option.

I've managed to build my own library since those days...lol.

Oh! $900 is a lot more than the cost of replacing a book.

So now you have a library. Or did you actually pay the fine? Would you have returned them if your fines were forgiven?

Oh, I paid the fine...and I've built the library of my dreams.

Good!  What is in your library?  Can we get a brief rundown?
