Only this time, there was a sticky note. Written in a very sloppy version of my handwriting it read: "DO NOT TRY that shit again. First warning. Last time." It was signed "Sleepy Jeff." And there was a clump of hair next to the sticky note. It was my hair. Later when I looked through the photos on my phone, there was a series of selfies that showed me holding the Dragon Lord to my throat. As well as photos documenting me writing the sticky note and posing in front of the relocated Little Red Book with a stern look on my face. So I really can't even try that again. I won't let me.
    LOL!

    I always find these types of topics about how one decides to collect what one collects and how they sort their collection very interesting. I can absolutely see why someone would organize their titles alphabetical by author regardless of publisher or by genre and I really can't argue the logic. If you want to find something with relative ease, alphabetical by author is the easiest way to do so. That being said, I organize all my books by publisher. There's something about all those little publisher logos lining up that brings calm to my soul. And while this organization might seem completely normal to some people on this forum, it is decidedly weird to non-collectors. When I show someone my collection there's usually a little bit of disbelief that collecting signed limited editions is a thing, but they usually get on board. But when they ask about the organization and I explain it's by publisher, that's when they look at me a little cross-eyed. Granted I can't blame them because to a non-collector it would be like organizing your movies by studio (so on shelf one is everything from Fox, the second shelf is MGM...) Now, within the respective publishers, I will organize by either line (Novella, Signature Series, Graveyard Editions) or trim size. I also have a hard time buying random books in a specific series. There would be no way that I could only buy the Malerman or Kiernan or Hill book of the Little Book series. I get one someone would, but I would just look at that lone book on the shelf...

    This is triggering me.

    I mean, I group books by author, too, but sets like the Little Books stand alone.

    Great point, but- I don't keep them together as a set. They go with their respective author's sections on the shelves. Actually, they are often that perfect little Tetris piece that fits nicely on top of a row in my obscenely overstuffed bookcases.
