Do you ever spread your books all over the floor, to get a new look at them? Or a possible photo opp?
Okay, maybe that’s just me. But at various points I’ve spread out my book collections of three of my favorite authors–and they turned into interesting photos! In ascending order by number of books…
I have 18 Tamora Pierce books – basically her entire Tortall series (except Mastiff; I’m waiting on the paperback), plus my favorite Magic Circle book.
L. M. Montgomery accounts for 46 volumes of my book collection. There’s one book of poetry I still need, but other than that, I own, well, everything. If she wrote it and it’s available, I have it. I’m kind of a completist… But you know what’s very frustrating? I have 199 LMM short stories. One more would make a round 200, but you can’t get another one anywhere (they exist, but they haven’t been printed). I live in hope that someday they’ll put out a new collection.
And the biggest collection of all – 54 Edgar Rice Burroughs books. I’ve added a few since this picture was taken. Burroughs was extraordinarily prolific, so I still have about twenty left to collect… Someday I’ll have them all, and then I won’t know what to do with myself in used bookstores!
What authors do you have the most books by? And have you ever spread them across your floor for a photo…or is that just me?
