    I don't really consider that I actually collect books - I just read a lot of books and could never throw them out...If I am on holidays I can read between 5 and 7 books a week - so I always end up buying an extra bag just to bring all my new books home! I won't join a...

    I Love Books

    There are series I started and I know I'll never finish them, but I have to collect every book in the series. I even tend to collect books written by a writer. If I get one of his books, I'll get them all!

    Collector

    I am pretty picky about what books I'll buy and what books I won't, but I've still managed to collect a big bookcase full of books. My biggest collection would be Stephen King books.
