There are books that I collect. I mean really collect...The ones that I love to grab are Stephen King and Tolkien. I'll admit I like Nicholas Sparks and try to collect all the "Twilight books" as in the movie cover ones etc. (but I don't have many of those last two because they are newer)
I almost forgot Lemony Snickett!
Anyway....Stephen King, I like to pick up his books at library book sales, garage sales, given to me, etc. It's more fun that way; it takes longer and I only have six but *eh.* I was looking at them on ebay earlier but that just takes the fun out of the searching. I like the different covers and the older covers. (Don't one of you blog readers have like ALL the Stephen King books? I could have sworn I saw them on a bookshelf pic. Diana @ Book Of Secrets maybe?)
Tolkien...same thing here. I just like 'em.
I'll pick up the same book if it has a different cover. It makes a neat collection!
Do any of you collect books in that way? Of course I have lots of other books but not any that I "collect" persay. If you do have some the you "collect" (hoard) what authors or stories are they? I'd love to know about them. :)
