Actually, I'm a mono-obsessor. The only time I start to collect 
something else is when I can't find any ML's or I can't think of 
anything to add to Dogeared. I've tried collecting Terry Pratchett, 
but ending up trading them all in for credit at Powell's Books for 
more ML's.

Overtime I've tried collecting non-books (stamps, coins, matchbooks) 
but nothing held me.
