Sure, it’s not the most embarrassing collection out there. I know a kindergartner who collects rocks. Seriously. And not even cool rocks, either. Regular, gravel-style gray lumps of compressed sediment nonsense. I drove him down a country road once and his head exploded.
But this post isn’t about dumb kids. It’s about dumb adults. Here’s my collection for all of you to pick through and criticize.
A few of my most treasured (though I love all my babies):
- Jesus’ Son by Denis Johnson (personally inscribed)
- The Fifty-Year Sword by Mark Z. Danielewski (super-rare
- Altmann’s Tongue by Brian Evenson (first edition)
- Survivor by Chuck Palahniuk (first edition)
Anyone else out there collect signed books? What are your treasures?
