Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme hosted by Jessi @ Novel Heartbeat. Each week Jessi chooses a topic (scheduled in advance) that’s not book related so we that we can get to know our fellow bloggers better – and to know more about them than just books. I’m thrilled to join in and I hope to participate every week from here on out. I hope you’ll join in too – check out the details here!
This week’s topic: Collections
I’m not really a collector of anything but books and even that collection is pretty small in comparison to most bookworms. The thing is, I move A LOT. In the past nine years I’ve moved eight times and I have another move coming up in September (hopefully the last in a VERY long time). I don’t particularly like moving, but it seems like being in school has just made moving the most economical decision. The result of moving a lot though is that you really start to learn what you can’t live without. Each move we’ve gotten rid of more. This last move was the first time in years that I actually got a bookshelf and unpacked my books. I probably wouldn’t have done that, but I THOUGHT we were done for a while. Things have changed – my mom’s moving in with us and the apartment complex we live in is being torn down… so for both reasons, we have to move again. Our apartment kind of sucks (it’s cheap, but it sucks) so it’s good that we’re moving.
Anyway… that’s all a long way of saying I don’t have a collection of anything but my books and most of them are on my eReader because moving makes owning collections very difficult. Once I get into a home and stay there for a couple years I might finally feel secure enough to start building a collection of some sort. But I can’t think of anything I’d want more than books!
Do you have any collections?
