Hosted by Miz B at Should Be Reading
Today's Question:

Are you currently collecting any authors? Why?
Do you have all of their books? If not, why not?
Did you buy all the books in the collection at the same time, or did you buy a book here, a book there? Have you actually read all of the collection? If not, why not?
My answer:
I never thought of it as collecting one author's books, but I do have all of the books written by a couple of authors.  One author, and you probably won't be surprised by this, is Vincent Zandri.  I have his books both in print and EBook editions and have read each one.  The book that hooked me, Moonlight Falls, is one that I have in print and is signed. I have them and have read them all is for the fact, pure and simple, that I enjoy his writing and his masterful way of story telling. 

Another author is Melissa Foster.  I have all of her books as she has been a guest on this blog as a Guest Author and has been kind to gift me a copy of each one.  I have yet to read one due to  my very low reading numbers this year, but am hoping to read one soon.

This topic is one of the negatives of owning an EReader, in my opinion.   A collection should be displayed so that all can see but, that is impossible with a digital device. 

What about you?  Do you have collections by a particular author?

How did I know you would say VincentZ :-)

I collect Mary Higgins Clark as she is the author that got me into mystery.

And Heath Sommer who did the Manufactured Identity is the new one for me.

I love my Kindle but those are the 2 authors I will continue to get in book form.

I don't really collect any particular author, but I do love my autographed books.
