    Tommy's Collection

    I have way too many books, but I do take good care of them, I keep them in a dark, cool environment, with Mylar on all the dust jackets and never read the limited/signed editions I have but rather borrow or buy cheap PB's of those Limiteds, I've been collecting since I was ten or eleven when I noticed all these strange, kinda creepy covers on my older sister's shelf by a man named Stephen King, it was not until Full Dark, No Stars and Cemetery Dance's Limited Edition of it that I realized that such collectibles are out there, now I am obsessed and have been collecting signed trade and signed/limiteds since, Thanks CD for kicking my mania into high gear!

    My picture taking is not the best but I will try to add better shots of the rarer items later on but for now...

    There is no such thing as 'way too many books'! Thanks for starting a new collector's thread, looking forward to see your books. Most of us leave a lot to be desired on the picture taking skills.

    Always love to see a new collection thread! Not enough new ones around here. Looking forward to more, especially closeups, so dag 'em off the shelf and fire away!

    I know sometimes I sit in front of my books and just wonder how lucky I was to be able to build/re-build my collection. It's a labor of love for sure. I see it whenever I look at other folks libraries. You can tell.

    It is definitely a labor of love with me, I shudder to think what life would have been like without books, I'm so grateful I was born after the printing press

    Very good collection. You are right. It is a labor of love. Thomas Jefferson said "I can not live my life without books". I tend to agree. I love reading and reading some of the limited editions is a treat. Please show more.

    Outstanding!!! Intrigued by you angle on your chapbooks. Looks like you went to some trouble for that shot!

    How about some closeups? Say of that signed Harris novel?
