    Most libraries only store books horizontally if they reach a certain size; I believe 15" and up is the norm. Stacking books, in general, tends to put undue stress on book spines; however, some books are so large that standing them upright would degrade them faster than stacking them horizontally.

    I protect my older comics by refusing to read newer comics with the same characters.
    Just re-reading my old collection, filling in the occasional gap with back issues, not buying anything new.

    Currently working my way through 1990's Flash, Impulse, and JLA, and occasional other related stuff.

    I stopped collecting comics about 15 years ago. Just got back into reading comics earlier this year, but instead of buying new stuff, I'm just rereading my old collection. So far, I've bought exactly 3 back issues from 1988 and 1995 to fill in gaps in my collection, so those are the only comics I've bought since 2004.

    I'm mostly joking about refusing to read anything newer. I don't really refuse, but nothing I've seen has motivated me to want to buy any newer comics. Especially since it'll probably take 2 years or more to finish rereading all the comics I already own.

    I'm in a similar boat as I havent really collected anything in probably 15 yrs also. The comic book movies and TV boom has gotten me much more into wanting to check out some of the bigger storylines that I have missed out on, though. I started by picking up Planet Hulk and Civil War. I still don't pick up hardly any newer issues, but have been picking up more recent TPB and a few HC books.
