Why is it that the mere presence of a new Kindle (well, secondhand, but new to me) suddenly inspires me with a desire to buy more books?

It's a trap.

Bought a kindle in 2019, and I still buy more physical books than cheaper Kindle copies 😅

Kindles are excellent for reading review copies of books though!*

*disclaimer: I uh have now read over 100 eARCs since I started reviewing books in maybe 2017 aha

I still prefer physical books as opposed to Kindle.

Me too. But you can get more books (and a lot of really good free ones, if you keep your eyes open) for your Kindle for the same price.
(Certain books though, I'll get print copies, 'cause I really like 'em.)
