Friday Finds [#6]: On a Mission

DSC00097

I have an obsessive personality. As in, I tend to give tenacious focus on things that I love. Kings of Leon. Shoes. Purses. Oh and books. This obsession with J.D. Robb is mind-boggling, however. I haven’t read anything written by Nora Roberts (JD Robb and Nora Roberts are one and the same). So I have no idea why I’ve been scouring the second-hand bookshops for these books. Never mind that there’s 41 books in this series so far.

The first book in this series was published back in 1995. Back then, I was obsessed with Harlequin Romance, and the concept of buying new books was a fantasy I didn’t indulge in often. What are the odds that I can find the earlier books to this series? Especially if I want to collect them in hardbacks? As it stands, I own 9. But these were more recently published, mostly bought at Goodwill, Vallue Village, and a couple that were picked up at a clearance.

The funny thing is, I have no intention of starting this series until I find the first book. And for some reason, I’m stubbornly set on not buying them new. I’m quirky like that. At this rate, when do you think I’ll be able to start them?
