Today's question: Series. Do you collect any series? Do you read series books? Fantasy? Mystery? Science fiction? Religious? Other genre? Do you use the series feature in LT to help you find new books or figure out what you might be missing from a series?
I collect a few series: First of all, the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella. Not only do I have the books as they were published in mass market paperback, I also have them in their trade paperback reprint form as well (the only exception being Shopaholic and Baby, which is in hardback). I'm the exact same as Shana at Literarily, except I also have Kinsella's other books as well. Can you tell I'm a fan?
I'm also a collector of Deanna Raybourn's Silent series, featuring Lady Julia Grey (Grave in mass market paperback, Sanctuary in trade). There are only two books out there right now, and I'll be excited when the third book in the series, Silent on the Moor, comes out next March.
I also seem to have quite a few books by Sharon Kay Penman, though her books cover several different series. I own four of Dorothy Sayers's mysteries, and a number of action/ thriller books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child that fall into one series featuring Agent Aloysius Pendergast. In nonfiction, I have most of Laurie Notaro's collections of essays. I also have all three of Jen Lancaster's books. So, yeah, I'm a series collector; once I'm hooked on an author or series, there's no stopping me.
