In Australia the ABC has a tv show called Collectors and it's incredible the range of stuff people collect, from the sublime to what most people would throw away. I'm intrigued by the people who collect via colour. Doesn't matter the object as long as it's sunshine yellow or dental surgery pink.
At first I thought I'd escaped this mania to collect, but my conscience tapped me on the shoulder and said, Ahem. Normal people don't have multiple book shelves double stacked.
Oh, yes. I collect books. Fiction mostly. Paperbacks if possible--the silverfish aren't as keen to eat them and I can fit more in!
Do you have the collecting mania?
