I LOVE reading book collections...in fact, that's about all I read. In four years I have made it almost completely through 3 different series. With only a few books left, I am on the hunt for something new to read. In all the time I have been reading the series, I have never run across anyone who also reads series. A few people have read a few of the books mentioned below, but, have not followed the series through. I'm wondering if I'm alone out there in searching out each and every book of a series.
Do any of you read series or collections, which ones are you reading?
These are mine...
*Nero Wolfe-by Rex Stout. A tv show with Timothy Hutton was on A&E a few years ago and turned me onto the books. Great dectective series without the blood and gore. A rather rotund stubborn man, and his attractive, charming assistant take on Manhattan. (only met 2 people who've read them) been reading them for 5 years.
*James Bond-by Ian Fleming. I LOVE the movies (with Sean Connery), so, I started reading the books. Which are infinately better. What's not to love, a handsome spy, some intrigue, great villains. In one, Nero Wolfe is mentioned. (only know 2 people that have read them). been reading them for 2 years.
*The Cat Who-Lillian Jackson Braun. I started reading these cause the library had SO many, and I couldn't find any of the above ANYWHERE. After the first, I was hooked. Great little mystery series involving a newspaper writer turned millionaire; who solves the towns mysteries with the help of his overly intelligent Siamese cat named Koko. (never met anyone who reads them) been reading them for 2 years)
So what about you?
