I put in a three-month order for over two dozen manga volumes at the 'Swap last night. This is something in the way of a test of their discounting and ordering service. What I'm hoping for is that this will result in fewer fruitless drives around the county looking for manga, and a slightly cheaper per-volume cost. What I'm fearing is an increase in delays and general irritation. What really sticks with me, once I listed off everything I was planning on getting for a three-month period, and laid it all down next to each other on a sheet of paper, is how large of a fraction of my income goes to this sort of thing. It's essentially eaten up the overwhelming majority of my entertainment budget.
