Fun Monday #I've lost count!

Our Fun Monday host this week is Mariposa and this is our assignment:

Collections...


We all have them...and if you don't, you do....you just may not realize it. For some reason or another we all collect something and we collect it for reasons that will definitely make for good reading. So on Monday, I want to see your collection. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T (wink) show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.

My collection in 10 words or less:

Books.

Why? My mother instilled a love of reading in me as soon as I was old enough to hold a book...and before as she read to me every night.

Thank you for stopping by my brief Fun Monday post (I'm sorry, it's been a really long week and I was working this weekend!) and don't forget to visit Mariposa to see who else is participating this week!

  10. I hope you get some rest this coming week!

    I included books in my post too....the stacks of unread books that are taking over my house.

  11. I love books, too - just don't have time to read them anymore. Sigh. And the new house has no wallspace for bookcases. They are languishing in boxes in my closet. Poor things!

  12. A few people have mentioned books. I don't know why I didn't think of books. We have a house full and a lot from my and my children's childhood packed away in boxes. I can't bear to get rid of them.

  13. I enjoy reading myself and keep only the books that I wish to re-read again. Thanks for sharing your collection.

  15. Ahh..books..I cannot live without them!!

  16. Yes, books are great. I've even kept some that my kids have outgrown!

  17. I think books are the big winner on the collection front. Last week I add three to my collection all be local writers, but next week they go off to other to read and enjoy, so I'm not a true collector.

  18. I hear you AOJ--nothing makes a true book lover feel more secure than to have many stacks waiting in the wings to be read--and read again when they're really good.

    Hope your week calms down.

  19. Sorry you have had a long week but there is nothing wrong with a short and sweet comment!

    Take care.

  20. I've winnowed down my book collection to 200, not counting the Betty Neels romance novels I keep in my bedroom closet and don't admit to owning.

    I'm trying to pass books on to church sales or to Goodwill after I read them, but it's not easy. It's going against the habits of a lifetime.

  21. I do believe that books have been the biggest collectors item!

  22. Books, geocaches, gadgets, maps. Passport stamps my son has long exceeded my total, my ex partner collection has slowed down a bit too.

  23. Wow, how short, you are running on little time. :)

    Books are grand and I should have included them. Oh well.
