#BEDN | Collections

Hey everyone :)

Welcome back to #BEDN and the post series! The topic today is 'Collections'. Over the years I've gathered lots of different collections including books, stuffed toys, games such as PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One etc etc ...

Before I moved to England I had an amazing collection of books however when I did my 'are they coming with me or not' cull they didn't make the cut and I threw most of them away. If your asking why I didn't take them to a charity shop then I was in a rush and it was 5am in the morning - nowhere was open and I needed to clear all my stuff out.

One of my favourite book collections was 'The Famous Five' by Enid Blyton - when I was a member of my local library (when I lived with my parents) I would visit the library every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (those were the days it was open) and take out as many books as I could (12 was the max) and read to my hearts content. If you remember that opening scene in Matilda with that little cart and her books ... that was me ... only with a rucksack instead (and a very sore back when I got home).

I loved 'The Famous Five' and I noticed that for Black Friday - Amazon had a special deal on all 21 books ... so I might be tempted as I just got paid too.

What collections do you have? Apart from books and stuffed teddies? Let me know in the comments below.
