confused with my hobby collections!) }

I Just HAD to Order this Book!

I've just ordered a new book, Collecting For Beginners, by Jeff Figler.  Now, I'm not exactly a beginner; I've had various collections since I was a little girl.  However, I've never let the words
"For Beginners" deter me if the book seems to be one I would enjoy reading.   And this definitely seems to be one I would enjoy reading. (I should probably say, "Will enjoy reading."  It was published recently, and among the items mentioned are refrigerator magnets!  
In the excerpt I read, the author says that his mother will soon need another refrigerator for all of her  magnets!
