I have had a few followers ask me if I collect anything and I felt my bedroom mantel was a prime example of the top three things I enjoy collecting: books, toys, and memories.  I also collect vinyl records, but those are stored in a wire carton atop my record player.  If you couldn’t tell, I enjoy instant photography and photo booths.  I have a lot of Polaroids, Instax photos, and digital photos on my computer too.
Another top question I get is what is in my library.  So I guess here it goes (in alphabetical order by author):
Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen
Revolution on Canvas (Poetry by the Indie Music Scene)
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess
The Stranger by Albert Camus
In Cold Blood by Truman Capote
How to Practice The Way to a Meaningful Life by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas
Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales by the Brothers Grimm
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Snow Falling on Cedars by David Guterson
Future Fashion White Papers (a compilation of essays and articles)
High Fidelity by Nick Hornby (not pictured on my shelf because I’m re-reading)
Juliet, Naked by Nick Hornby
Confederates in the Attic by Tony Horwitz
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Socrates in Love by Kyoichi Katayama
Grotesque by Natsuo Kirino
Out by Natsuo Kirino
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Atonement by Ian McEwan
The Small Stakes by Jason Munn
Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
Ada, or Ador by Vladimir Nabakov
I Am A Cat by Soseki Natsume
One Day by David Nicholls
Youth in Revolt by C.D. Payne
The Worst Intentions by Alessandro Piperno
Anthem by Ayn Rand
Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress by Dai Sijie
Beijing Doll by Chun Sue
Dracula by Bram Stoker
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde (I also love The Importance of Being Earnest)
I have a lot of other inspiration books that cover inspiring artists like Andy Warhol, Chanel, and fashion illustration as well, but I figured people were inquiring about fiction and literature.  And this is what I have with me at school, I have some more back home (like the Harry Potter series, etc).  But I recommend everything that’s listed above.  At the end is the four volume set of Tenshi Nanka Ja Nai by Ai Yazawa in Japanese.  I can’t read Japanese but I love that series so much that I couldn’t help but buy the books.
And most of the toys are Kidrobot, tokidoki, and Frank Kozik.
If I read a few more good books in the future, I’ll probably post about it  d(-_- o)
