    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.

    I Can't Let Go of My Books

    I have lugged them around for as long as I have had them. Cookbooks, scary stories, classics, self help books, novels, fiction. I love to look at my 'library,' and love when people ask to borrow them (and read and return them of course). I collect magazines too, for the fact that...

    Anything I Read!!

    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...
