I read them. I have done for a long time and I've got most of the books, save about one or two.
I read them when I was younger and laughed at the silly strips, like when Calvin blows up the school (which still makes me laugh), and I didn't really get the messages of a lot of the other strips. Now that I'm a bit older I get those ones I didn't. It's good to be able to rediscover and enjoy reading them with a different understanding.
I only own two books, but I have read all of them except homocidical psyco jungle cat and , of course, Teaching with calvin and Hobbes. I always crack up when I read the comic when his parents scold him about having a surly attitude in the morning and the calvinball strips. I just learned that Calvin lives in Chagrin Falls, Ohio.
I loved Calvin and Hobbes back when I was in grade school! I thought Calvin's parents were hilarious! Looking back though, I probably didn't understand much of the dialogue when I was seven or eight....especially Calvin's philosophical discussions with Hobbes while riding in their wagon. I still have all the books I collected somewhere.
"Haven't done this much traveling by train since 2002 or so...
Man, that's weird"
I feel lIke I'm the only 16 year old who likes C&H. I have all of my dad's comics, and he has every one of them, all paperback. When I was younger, I made my parents buy me a stuffed tiger so I could name it Hobbes. Wish I still had him, but I still got the books. Maybe I gotta read them again, it's been a 2 years at least.
Getting crazy and we've gone Cuckoo. Gonna party till they take us away.
