    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.

    I'm a total antique book junkie,

    I don't read books...I consume the information from between the covers!

    I have loved books ever

    since I was in the fourth grade and could check them out at the school library. They were a wonder for me living out on the stark and lonely prairies of the Great Plains as a child. Reading them would introduce to me people, cultures and places that I could only imagine of ever...

    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!

    I prefer physical books, so I can feel the paper in my hand and hear that flick when I turn the page. Besides, reading digital books strains my eyes.
