    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 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...

    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.

    The closest decent bookstore is almost two hours away. I hate it, because I have to order books online. Even if they're cheap, you still have to pay for shipping.
