One of the things I’ve been trying to do a lot of since starting this blog is check out other awesome book review blogs and get involved in some of the weekly challenges and prompts they use.
Today I’m going to be taking part in the Book Blogger Hop! This is currently active over at Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer and bloggers all over the sphere get involved to answer the prompt, visit some of the other responses, and make new connections!
This week’s prompt comes from Billy @ Coffee Addicted Writer and they asked: “Do you own more than one copy of a book?”
And my answer is: Oh hell, yeah. But only a special few haha.
Listen, I would love to collect every cover of every book I love. But If I did that, moving from one apartment to another would be an insane feat of humanity that I would never want to undertake again. So, for a while, I’m being smart with which books I purchase physically. Or…I’m trying my very best to be.
With that said, there are a few books that I do own multiple copies of and most of them are beloved favorites.
I own two copies of my favorite fantasy series, The Dresden Files, hardback and paperback. That wasn’t on purpose but just happened naturally over the years and years that I’ve read that series. I used to annotate my paperbacks too, so it’s fun to have one copy that’s been marked over and over and another that’s clean and fresh.
I also own multiple (many) copies of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. These were my first and favorite fantasy stories and I love them and Middle-Earth so much, so yeah. I’m that lady with 18 editions of the hobbit in her living room haha. Literally. (Though I haven’t counted.) I love collecting these in multiple languages and covers, especially through gifts or thrifting. It’s been fun to collect them all.
I’m sure there are a few scattered others but these are the big ones.
What about you? Do you own multiple copies of books you love?
Leave me a comment letting me know!
