I have books of all types but today I am talking about some bad ass books I own, some that many will not consider their kind of books but others will readily recognize and absolutely love. They are vintage, they are beautiful and they hold a fantastic world within their bindings. These books are my collection of original Dungeons & Dragons books, D&D. I have many of the original first editions, not all but one day I will. I try to find ones that are in as good condition as possible. These books are different than many others like them out today. There have been many five editions since these began, but I love the originals. These are the ones that started it all. They are absolutely something to behold with the artwork that completely covers them and runs through their interior. There is some magic in their creation, which is awesome because they are designed to create a new world anytime you want.
Every now and then I get them out if it has been a while, and I just slowly peruse the pages and smile. It has been some time since I have actually put them to their geeky use, which is sad but they bring back some fantastic memories. This is the second post of this nature, the first was some reminiscing with my dice collection, now this is a follow up. Don’t make fun of me because I am talking about books with pictures, which are awesome by the way, because everyone needs a guilty pleasure and for me these qualify. If you aren’t familiar with them, that makes me sad but you could look them up or if you have a friend who qualifies as a geek, then ask him or her and maybe they will have some and will show you.
My collection of books, if I can call it that, is varied and big for me. I have books that cover so many types of reading desires. I still don’t have enough. Some I have didn’t cost me anything, a few I spent some money on because they intrigued me. As I am writing this I am inspired to find my old Dr. Seuss books and make sure they make it into the collection. They would fill an important part of my collection, when books first inspired me. Maybe I will put them next to my Dungeons & Dragons collection. Everyone has something they hold as precious, my books are something I wouldn’t be able to get rid of; especially gems like these. I like to live in a creative world and these rock the imagination. Do you have books like that? If you do then you know what I mean by bad ass books.
