16. Vinyl has made something of a comeback
Some recording artists, indie bands and others, still release albums on vinyl, and I've heard that it's even increasingly popular to do so. A lot of people prefer the "warmer" sound of LPs vs. CDs. There's also a big collectors market in old LPs, depending on their rarity and condition. I just got a turntable that can convert LPs to digital files via a USB connection, and I'm having fun listening to albums I haven't been able to play for many years. I think you should keep any that you're fond of.

"Interestingly, the vinyl resurgence continues slowly and inconspicuously, as sales of vinyl LPs rose from 1.88 million in 2008 to 2.5 million in 2009 a 33 percent increase. Vinyl sales remain a very small slice of the music sales pie in comparison to digital and CD sales, but it certainly looks like theyve crafted a dependable niche. More vinyl albums were purchased in 2009 than in any other year since Nielsen started tracking them in 1991."
