Love Collecting Books!
I love when I’m able to get a signed book from an author! It makes that book even more special. Over the years I’ve collected quite a few and I adore each one. This collection of mine actually started with a Christmas gift one year.
As many of you know, I’m a huge “Twilight” fan (don’t make fun – I really love the books and the movies!). Well, my daughter presented me with a gift that was a first edition of the first novel in the series – “Twilight” – signed by the actors of the movie. No, it didn’t have Stephanie Meyer’s signature but it was so special to know that this book had been on the Red Carpet movie premier and the signatures were real!
Soon I started attending author events and book signings where I got to meet the authors and in some cases, actually spent time with them, talking about the writing world. I’d always leave with a signed copy of their latest creation. When I got it home, I almost didn’t want to open the book to read it!
Here are a few of the signed books I have:
And I keep adding to my collection all the time!
Do you have certain books you like to collect? Maybe books that are all in a certain genre? Or maybe they are all by the same author? I would love to know!
Happy Reading Everyone!
