    Wisden Almanacks

    How many do you own and what do you think of them?

    I have the Millenium Almanack and the 2005 Almanack (which is way cheaper because of an Indian publisher).

    I would like it to be a more international cricket almanack.

    I own a lot of cricket books and magazines but just did not think it was worth buying the almanack when it was so costly before.

    A couple of dozen, but none for 10 years. I used to buy one every year because I used to set and run sports quizzes (so every year I'd get Wisden, Rothman's Football Yearbook, Rothman's Rugby Yearbook, an album from Sporting Life about horseracing, The Ring (boxing), Athletics News or some such animal and loads of other stuff.

    All redundant because of the intrawebs, but I've still got a Wisden on the downstairs bookcase next to my PC desk.

    It's the 1979 one.

    I own a few old ones but not a full collection of any sort

    However, I do have all the Australian ones (started in 1998 IIRC)

    That book came free with the Wisden Millenium edition. I have it too.
