I know a lot of us have collections and it just hit me that I'm curious about what you guys love.
So tell me what your favorite item in your collection is. It can be a book or something totally different. It's also a good opportunity to talk about all of the cool stuff that's out there.
I have two favorites and I love them both for the same reason - they were incredibly thoughtful gifts.
1. My Fantasy and Science Fiction with the first story of the Gunslinger. This was a gift from my ex (I know I've talked about this on here previously so I apologize) and it started my fervor for collecting. I felt like I was holding a piece of history that I didn't even know existed. It was wonderful that he did the research and found it for me. And this was before the Internet was super popular so he must have done a lot of work. He was a thoughtful guy like that.
2. A few years ago I got to go meet Mr. King - on my birthday. I was so incredibly excited. The night before we left for our road trip my husband brought me a dozen roses. In the vase he had taken a little toy gun and painted it to look like Roland's gun. It was so sweet! I still have that little gun and I LOVE it. It's on my SK bookshelf. (Yes, I only have one ridiculously over-flowing book shelf!) He took so much time to paint it and make it look old. I tried to save a rose too but my cat made sure that wouldn't happen! Every time I see it I reminded of that experience.
So what do you have that you love?
