Year you started collecting: AT A YOUNG AGE
Shelving method (by genre, author, signed copies): WHEREVER I CAN FIND SPACE
Total number of copies: 10,000 - 20,000
Total number of signed copies: 500 - 600
Favorite treasure (s): SIGNED COPY OF HELEN KELLER'S BIOGRAPHY, SIGNED COPY OF NELSON MANDELA'S CONVERSATION WITH MYSELF
Favorite part of having signed books: I AM NOW PRIMARILY COLLECTING SIGNED FIRSTS BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT THE AUTHORS HAVE TOUCHED THEM. COLLECTING COMMENTS: IN ADDITION TO READING THEM, I APPRECIATE THEIR BEAUTY, TACTILE QUALITIES, ILLUSTRATIONS, DESIGN AND THE FANTASIES THEY BRING TO MIND.
