Being a family of collectors, here is a continuation to my previous article about My Son’s Collection.   In this writing I will reveal my collections and my husband’s passion for collecting stuffs.
complete set of Harry Potter Series

Lord of the Rings, Dan Brown's, Robin Cook's, John Grisham's, etc.

over 200 Star Wars books

 some of Yahmir's book collection

I am a book-lover.  I am fond of reading fiction, non-fiction, thriller, suspense, fantasy and other topics that catch my interest.  These books that I am buying and reading does not just stay in the bookshelves after I am done reading, for my husband and my sons are reading it too.  Seldom that I buy new or firsthand books, usually I buy them on book-sale or second hand book outlets,  except for the Harry Potter Series, Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings and Dan Brown’s collection.  

I also have this craze in collecting gadgets, from pagers to pda and cell phones.  At the moment, I am saving to buy an e-book reader, for my e-book collections be organized.

I love to sew too, cross stitching became a hobby years ago, but due to hectic schedule I stopped doing it for a while but will get back to it again soon.

My husband is a piggy figurine collector.  These figurines he gathered over the years came from different places here and abroad.  Some of them were given as gifts.

Ostrich eggs are the largest eggs laid by any living bird, till date.  The shell of the ostrich egg is strong, and is 0.06 inches thick.  On an average, the weight of an ostrich egg is close to 1 kg.  They are approximately 6-7 inches in length and 15-18 inches around.  Aside from the its size, we collect them for it is said that Ostrich eggs usher in good luck.
