    I'm a total antique book junkie,

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

    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...

    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!

    Kids Books

    I couldn't tell you how many I have but I don't throw them away. I have shelves of books for the kids and they love them. I read to them nightly and usually there is no limit... which means it goes on and on. I encourage the kids to read it back to me even if it's baby chatter. I...

    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.

    Especially used bookstores. Full of old, dusty books that have their own personalities and histories. Sometimes you find a treasure.
