Thoughtful Thursday: Multiples

Have you ever bought multiple editions of the same book? What inspires you to do that (e.g., covers, language, author revisions)?

O… I have indeed. Many, many times. Usually it’s the kindle and paperback versions, but I’ve also bought hardbacks, audio books, and second editions from a new publisher.

The most extensive collections I have currently are from the following authors:

Diana Gabaldon

Karen Marie Moning

E.L. James

Sylvain Reynard

What about you? Is one enough or do you have favorite authors that you’ve built a collection around?

    OMG! I thought I was the only one that did that. The only collection I can say I have are Sylvia Day books. I have many, many other ones on Kindle and paperback. If I love a book too much I’ll buy of course the Kindle edition, and paperback/hard cover edition, and an extra edition that I lend out to friends and family, because I want my own collection to be nice and perfect, so I don’t have to worry on the condition my family and friends return them.

    I’m glad to know I’m not crazy.

    Tess of the D’Urbervilles is one of my favourite books ever. I studied it for A level (UK school stuff). I have an old copy, a new one & a copy in French – hubs got me it. My saddest thing is that the one I studied with and highlighted to hell, I leant to someone and never got back. Oh and I have 3 copies of Just/Simply Human cos Kerry Heavens is super.

    Ok! I’m a little nuts. I have the collectors editions of Twilight, plus the first set that I bought for my daughter, which she cares nothing about. So they’re mine 😄 and the editions that have extra stuff in them. I have two sets of The Discovery of Witches trilogy, one signed and the other not. I love to share what I’m reading so I let people barrow them.
