It's Friday again, and this means it's time for Follow Friday. There has been a slight change to the format, as now there are two Follow Friday hosts blogs and two Follow Friday Features Bloggers each week. To join the fun and make now book blogger friends, just follow these simple rules:
- Follow both of the Follow My Book Blog Friday Hosts (Parajunkee and Alison Can Read) and any one else you want to follow on the list.
- Follow the Featured Blogger of the week - Creativity and Crazy.
- Put your Blog name and URL in the Linky thing.
- Grab the button up there and place it in a post, this post is for people to find a place to say hi in your comments.
- Follow, follow, follow as many as you can, as many as you want, or just follow a few. The whole point is to make new friends and find new blogs. Also, don't just follow, comment and say hi. Another blogger might not know you are a new follower if you don't say "Hi".
- If someone comments and says they are following you, be a dear and follow back. Spread the love . . . and the followers.
- If you want to show the link list, just follow the link below the entries and copy and paste it within your post!
- If you're new to the Follow Friday Hop, comment and let me know, so I can stop by and check out your blog!
How does one count collections? I have a number of Star Trek novels. Are they just part of my book collection? Should I combine them with my Star Trek DVDs and assorted tribbles to form a Star Trek collection? Should all of my Star Trek material be combined with an array of other books, DVDs, toys, and games related to Firefly, Farscape, Babylon 5, and other science fiction stuff to create a science fiction collection? Are my numerous role-playing games books part of my game collection or my book collection? Are my fantasy games part of my fantasy collection, and are my science fiction games part of my science fiction collection?
I'm not really confused by this. My point is that what collections I have depends on how you count collections. By some measures I have basically one giant collection of science fiction and fantasy material. But another measure, I have dozens of collections, many of which overlap in substantial ways - including many that overlap with the contents of my book collection. How one answers the question of "what collections do you have" is an answer that depends upon how much granularity one wants to provide in response. I could say I have a collection of issues of Asimov's Science Fiction, but I consider that to be ancillary to my collection of magazines, but I consider that to be ancillary to my collection of books, which I consider to be ancillary to my collection of science fiction and fantasy material in general. And so on and so forth. So the answer, which is probably entirely unsatisfying, is that I have a couple dozen collections (with the lines between them being blurry and indistinct) that are all pretty much part of one large collection.
