I love taking part in features and memes. It brings us book lovers and book bloggers a bit closer together, if only in our shared love of reading great books. So today I discovered something new. 🙂
From the Feature Post at Parajunkee.com: This is a new feature, where you can participate, telling us your craziest confessions. Here’s how it works. Write a post about your most eccentric bookworm confession, and put your post link below. I will go around checking your blogs, and choosing the craziest bookworm confessions, and featuring them into our next post.
So I thought, “Why not?” I’m all for connecting with other bookworms and sounds like a fun new feature to take part in.
My Bookworm Confession
When I write in posts that “so and so” is one of my favorite authors, people assume that I like and read all of their books. Which is correct, but only to a certain point.
For an example of my true meaning of “favorite author” – I love Nora Roberts novels, whether under that name or writing as J. D. Robb, I will purchase, on release day, any of her books. My confession is a bit more than just making certain I have all of an author’s books though.
I search through book sales, garage sales, obscure bookstore dusty stacks for different covers or earlier books by the author (or any other name they write under) until I have as complete a collection of an author’s books as is possible. I have Nora Roberts’ very first novel written, Irish Thoroughbred in 1981. I have several J. D. Robb ..In Death books from the United Kingdom. And several duplicate books but with different covers.
I have several authors that I have done this with. Obviously, I cannot afford to do this with every author that I read frequently. But for those that I will never, ever miss a new book on release day – yeah. I have two bookcases full of my book collection obsession for these books.
So maybe it’s not the craziest confession – but it is mine. If you have a bookworm confession of your own head on over to Anila’s post and start confessing.
