So, Weekly Geeksters, tell us, do you have a collection, (or are you starting a collection,) of one particular book title? If so, what's your story? Why that book, and how many do you have, and what editions are they? Share pictures and give us all the details.
Or perhaps you dream about starting such a collection. What title would it be and what would it take for you to get motivated to start collecting?
I own 3 copies of Pride & Prejudice, and that's it.
Although I have had as many as 1300+ books at one time, I am trying (tryyyyying) to view books like other objects. That is, that I only want to be surrounded by what adds value to my life. Yes, I'm trying to be very Zen about it... or something.
So now, when I finish a novel, if it wasn't amazing, I pass it on. If it's non-fiction I ask - will I use this again?
So having more than one copy of a single title works against this ideal.
However, what I would enjoy owning, is a first edition or early edition collection of certain titles. Such as all Austen's works, or poetry of Frost, Poe and others. I have an early edition of P&P and one of Shelley's poetry. Books with leather or older styles of binding are lovely objects.
What are the other geeksters dreaming of?
