I collect the BTS Special Collector's Edition Magazine plus I have also have the Time Magazine about them, the Entertainment Weekly about them and Biography Present BTS. The Special Collector's Edition Magazine only come out every two or three months. They have fun activites like Word Searches, Quizzes and etc. The recent one that I got had coloring pages of BTS.

I have habit of collecting stamps and antique stuff. It has always helped with the various collection habits. I know one thing for a reason that such type of the habit has always helped me in the due process of meeting new people and some of the time selling it kind of got the burden of collection off the chest.

Do you still collect stamps? Do you still have your collection? These days it is really difficult to get hands on stamps because people are either using electronic communication or private postal delivery that do not use stamps.

I collect video games, consoles, and also Tolkien's works.  I've been collecting games and consoles since I was a kid, I just never got rid of mine like other people did, so it naturally grew into a collection.  I have something like 42 consoles and handhelds and 2,500+ games in total.  I've been recently collecting Tolkien's works, as well, Middle Earth and non-Middle Earth works.  He knows how to write a great tragedy, but some of this works are so hard to find!

I'm not a collector myself but have friends that collect geocaches.  Which is a activity where people search and find small prizes and takes puzzles to solve them to find the specific cache.

Model trains 😛 . I have close to 100 model locomotives of various shapes and sizes now, plus well over 100 items of rolling stock (probably over 200, in fact).

I also have about 40 model F1 cars, but I haven't added to that collection for a while now.

I don't have anything recent, sadly, but I'll try and get some of the current chaos.  Game room is in flux :D

That'd be awesome! I find it so difficult to organise my games, such a lack of space for them!

Sorry, I totally forgot about this, I will try to find some time to get some pictures of what I can, as I said, it's in a state of flux, so just a giant mess :D

I am also a book collector. I once had 5000 books (paper backs and hardcovers), however, these days I only collect digital books. I collect books from writers like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, James Joyce, J, M. Coetzee, Salman Rusdie,

I was inspired by a writer in our country who had 40 thousand books. Before he died, he donated his books to a library. The oldest library in the country is actually a private library

That's an amazing collection!  I've always viewed books as both a form of escapism and means of acquiring knowledge, and knowledge is most definitely your best tool in this world, meaning books are one of the most valuable tools in this world.  More people need to appreciate the written word, IMO, so beautiful!

I collect video games and consoles myself. Also pop figures too and comic books. I'm trying to get the last three Raven pop figures, and I would love to own all the Sonic pop figures at some point, but the old ones are super expensive now... I want to get all the IDW Sonic the Hedgehog comics that have been released up until now, and I would love to own all the Teen Titans Go comics based on the 2003 cartoon. I also collect Pokemon cards and my wife and I have a complete base set 1. We're working on completing our base set 2, jungle, and some of the sets based on generation 2 of Pokemon. (I honestly forgot the name of the sets though...)
