I owned one before learning Greek. I used it to prop up one end of a bookcase. When I was moving to a new apartment to go to school, it got wet from the rain; wrecked the binding so that it was basically unusable. I think I got my money's worth out of it :)

Ahh !  That justifies the purchase of an interlinear.  They are quite valuable if they are never used.  :-)

I bought an interlinear NT by mail order from Baker Book House when I was in
junior high school or high school, just out of curiosity. It never hurt me a
bit.

Then again, I never used it, as far as I can recall. I do recall seeing it
sitting there on my shelf for years--can't remember whether I eventually
sold it or gave it away. I do think it somehow kept reminding me, until I
got to college and could take my first Greek class, that the New Testament
was written in a mysterious language that I ought to try to learn someday.
