Hey guys! It’s time for Top Ten Tuesday, which is currently being run by the lovely Jana over at That Artsy Reader Girl. We knew instantly that we wanted to take part in this weekly meme because both of us love making list, so this is perfect!
This week’s (May 21st, 2019) topic is: Books That I Refuse to Let Anyone Touch.
This is a bit of a weird post for me because I really don’t lend out my books and no one asks LOL I don’t have really any reader friends and any that I do have probably wouldn’t be interested in most of my stuff (thank god!). I’ll tackle this week as if people do ask and what are some books that I would never lend out for various reasons. Out let’s do this!
Six of Crows Collector’s Edition
I haven’t even read this book yet but I had to get it. I know I’ll love the book and this edition has beautiful full color illustrations at the back.
Cruel Prince and Wicked King Exclusive Owlcrate Editions
People seem to be selling these for crazy amounts of money now, so I don’t want my copies getting ruined. I really like the covers and they are signed, so they need to be protected at all costs!
Harry Potter Illustrated Editions
I’m obsessed with these and I wish more books would put out these edition (Narnia, please?!?!!?). They are just stunning and I can’t wait until the entire collection is out.
The Andrew Lang Fairy Books
This is more of a sentimental thing. I grew up on these books. My mom always read to me from them and they aren’t the cheapest to replace. My collection isn’t in great shape but they are well loved and treasured.
My Graphic Novel Collection
Yep, all of them. They are really expensive to collect and I don’t have a pile but the ones I have I want to keep them in good condition and I’d be upset if I had to start replacing some.
Barnes and Nobles Classic Collector’s Editions
I have a bunch of these and plan on doing a post about it at some point, but there is no way I’d lend these out. I use them for decoration more than anything and I had them shipped from the states to Canada – those things are very heavy, it wasn’t cheap by any means.
City of Bones Collector’s Edition
I just can’t really imagine lending out collector’s editions period. They are more for looking at from a distance LOL This has all kind of little goodies inside such as full colored illustrations.
Throne of Glass Collector’s Edition
Yet again, another CE that I wouldn’t been keen to let others get their grubby hands on. It’s stunning to look and looks amazing on my shelf.
He-Man – She-Ra Complete Episode Guide
This book weighs EASILY 20lbs, not sure who would even want to borrow this one LOL
Anything Signed by the Author
I probably wouldn’t let a book that was signed by the author go, it seems too special to me. At least any of the ones I really treasure.
That’s a few of my DO NOT TOUCH items! Did we have any of the same? Let me know what your biggest do not touch item is!
