Life of a Blogger: Collections

Last week’s topic: Embarrassing Things



I think pretty much every one of us bookworms collects the same thing: Books! But other than books I also collect movies, shot glasses, and magnets. Those are my main collections – when I see any of those things I like, I get it and add it to my growing collection. Any time I’m traveling I always have to pick up a shot glass and magnet from where I’m at! Another major one that I don’t really think about because it isn’t physical is music. Whenever I find a song or artist that I really like, I go and download it. I currently have 75 gb of music which is almost 14,000 songs (that’s 37 days of music!), and it’s still growing because I’m in the process of ripping all of my old CDs so I can sell them.

I’m still living out of boxes and all my shot glasses are currently packed up, so I can’t take a picture of the updated version. This picture is old from when I only had a few of them. The shelf is completely full now!

Yet another thing I collect but don’t have much of is dragons. I’ve always loved them, and I really love the gray resin style dragons. Here is my favorite:


I also have this one:


Your turn! Make your own post telling everyone about things you collect and link up :)

  1. I hope to have a DVD collection as large as yours someday! Not to mention, you have a great book collection. Thanks for the topic.

  2. +JMJ+

    I love your shelves! =D The photo also raises some questions about YA cover palettes, like . . . Do publishers deliberately design covers to go well with black?

  3. Those dragons are awesome! I have a few gargoyles, but I didn’t think I really had enough to call it a collection. I included movies in my post, too. My family has a TON!
    Thanks for the topic. :) I really liked this one.

  4. I don’t collect too many things. Of course, books, but it’s sort of comes in phases. I get a lot of my books from the library. But then I’ll get in a book buying mood and buy lots of books.

    I do sort of have a makeup collection, though. I have way too much makeup.

  5. Before I moved last time, I ripped all my CDs and my husband’s CDs onto our computer and got rid of them all! It cleared out SO MUCH SPACE and was totally worth the time and effort. Plus, in this era of digital music, I’d rarely ever listen to just the one CD from beginning to end. I much prefer to make mixes (each containing hundreds of songs) to suit various moods, and then just put the whole thing on shuffle!

  6. Love the dragons! I don’t collect anything (but books obviously), but I think it would be neat to have a token like a shot glass or key chain or magnet from every place I visited. I haven’t done much traveling really, but maybe I’ll start something like that once I stop moving so much!

  7. Very pretty collection of books! I also like the dragon :D

    Besides books, I collect DVDs (mainly Disney and animations) and that’s about it, I believe… I do have a lot of nail polish and bookmarks, but it’s not that I really collect them.
