Dewey's 24 Hour Read-a-thon: Mini Challenge Collection Obsession

Dewey's 24-hour Readathon

Wendy at Caribou's Mom is hosting this mini challenge for hours 8 through 10 of the 24 Hour Read-A-Thon.

Most obsessive readers are also collectors. Besides books, what do YOU collect?

I will answer this in the form of poetry:

In the midst of my books
I place precious something
you must be thinking of bookmarks
yes, I do collect those too
along with scraps of paper
matchboxes, coins,
black and white pictures of movie stars
yet, those count for nothing

"I collect memories, which I won't share
here with you, as no picture can do justice"

Love the poem as a response to the mini-challenge.

You are doing great. I got a little thrown off schedule this am, but I’m back on track now. Keep up the good work!

I will surely need a nap a bit later unless, I walk around the house constantly until I fall over from exhaustion...LOL
