Musing Monday #7

Time for another Musing Mondays Post! Hosted by Should be Reading.

Are you currently collecting any authors? Why? Do you have all of their books? If not, why not? Did you buy all the books in the collection at the same time, or did you buy a book here, a book there? Have you actually read all of the collection? If not, why not?

In general, yes, I do like to collect authors. I try to only buy one book at a time because otherwise I would just be collecting the books for bragging rights, and I might not get around to reading them. I’m kind of anal about it too. If I have the print copy of, for example, the first book in a series, I like to get the following books in print as well. I try to get them in matching covers and formats as well. I don’t like it when I have the soft cover version of one book and the hardcover version of another.

Currently I’m collecting Maggie Stiefvater books. I have Lament: The Faerie Queen Deception and I’ve always wanted to read Ballad. I’m dying to read Linger and Forever on my Kindle; I purchased Shiver on my Kindle because I wasn’t happy about how they made the print version: the text is coloured! While it sounds cool, I don’t think it would be easy to read long-term.
