I once fretted a lot over this phenomenon, but I embraced it and learned to love the bomb, so to speak. Over the years I've come to understand that there are two aspects to being a Gamer, and while they can go hand-in-hand, they can also exist separately: these are the hobby of collecting games, and the hobby of playing games. The sales of hobby games would be dismal, I mean close-up-the-industry dismal, if people only bought games they are truly and actually going to play. It's really because of the collecting part of the hobby we can have an industry. And yes, as long as you have them, read them, because you can get so much inspiration from them, and pretty much for everything, from world-building to adventure writing, to even fiction and sometimes non-fiction.

And The Grand History of the Realms rocks! As far as I'm concerned, it is THE best book to come out of WotC in 2007.
