    I stacked my lgb collection against the wall to do a thorough cleaning around their bookshelves and took a picture of them in all their gilded glory. I currently have just under 1100 unique titles, with a few different editions of duplicate titles (difference in cover, etc.). I have about 300 or so to finish out collecting all titles published. I'm such a dork about them I created a spreadsheet and got an autographed collector's guide. My holy grail would be a complete set of the first 12 A printings with dust jackets from October 1942, but I'm not able to pay the cost associated with obtaining them at the moment. I also have about 200 various formats by golden: first Littles, big Littles, tiny library, records, and shape books

      Windwalker--I love those parody books. I've been collecting about a year now. I started last year because I was getting ready to exhibit a history of them am the collector we were working with vanished so I panicked and started expanding my own collection. The exhibit was installed and had excellent response so I stated collecting more seriously. I've been getting slightly more insane ever since.

      Amber rose--you are lovely to offer!! I have my list at (sorry for the long link) https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhmXu543urkrdGg0N19zTXBnU3VDTl9kb190M09PdEE&usp=docslist_api
      The yellow cells are what I have and the other columns show edition or cover number or category. These are standard sizes, giants, activity, and ding dong school books. Thank you for your interest, sincerely.

      Dr fluffy--thank you! While my husband has his own hobbies and collections, all he can do is shake his head anytime I have a new one come in and smile politely as I show him in my guidebook "see!! It's worth this much here but I only or it for $2!!" I remind him my enthusiasm is one of the reasons he married me.
