I relax and destress by reading. As a collector of books as well as of stamps, if I read one book in a series I'll have to read (which for me generally means "purchase and keep") all of them.
My collection includes:
|All of Agatha Christie's mystery novels and plays|
|All of the James Bond novels, both those by Ian Fleming and those by John Gardner|
|Every Star Trek® novel published by either Bantam or Pocket1|
|Every Star Wars® novel published (excluding childrens' stories)|
|The complete Horatio Hornblower series|
|The complete "Jane Jeffreys" mysteries by Jill Churchill|
|The complete Tales of the City series by Armistead Maupin|
In addition, all of the novels I read — as required as well as recommended reading — for high school and college are in my library.
