Red Rose tea figurines and comic books are mainly the kind of collections I own.

I practically thrive on tea, so collecting those figures from the boxes aren't a problem, especialyl since they come in different colors and set themes (Noah's Ark, Circus, etc.).  I only started that collection about half a year ago, so I only have 15 figures or so.

Though I'd say my comic collection is my largest.  I have about 200+ TPBs of both Japanese and American comics, along with 30+ monthlies (mostly Batman, Detective Comics and The Spirit).  I have some .cbr files as well, but they're not as fun to collect as physical copies. ;)

Hmmm...
manga
books
soft things (pillows and plushies)
mugs (for tea)
tea....
I used to collect old-style Coke bottles, but I don't get the chance to much anymore.
games, I guess
anime DVDs, though usually limited to particular series I or my husband REALLY like...
necklaces
earrings
ribbons (I used to tie my hair up in a ponytail and put a ribbon on it, like Kazuha. Except then I cut my hair short, so now it's styled like Satou-keiji's)
bags (purses, totebags, backpacks...my husband says I have too many)
blankets (goes along with the soft stuff, and the fact that I get cold easily)
yarn (I enjoy crochet, though I've not had a chance to really work on anything in a while...I should pick up a blanket)

Um, that's all I can think of at the moment...
I have finally started to actually publish my story! For the moment, expect a new chapter each month.
The Case of the Midnight Channel
"When a strange letter summons the Mouri family to Inaba, Ran is expecting a case. She's not expecting it to involve the TV, though.
If Naoto investigated everyone who came to visit Inaba, she'd have little time for real cases. When Yukiko reports that the Midnight Channel is back, however, she starts to wonder if the visitors are connected. Especially when the image clears, unveiling yet another mystery."

Short version: I'm taking various DC/MK characters to Inaba (where Persona 4 takes place) and dropping them through the TV to face their Shadows!

TPB's short for "trade paperback," basically just another word for "graphic novel" ** (a term more commonly used than 'trade paperback'), which are comics collected into book format (sort of like 'tankoban' for manga).  I use it to describe both Japanese and American comics collected into that format.   ;)  I have more than 200 of those, including some in Japanese.  Monthlies are individual comic books, traditionally released by month in the US(roughly 32 to 48 pages long). 

As for .cbr's, or Comic Book Reader files, those are files archiving collected scanned pages of monthlies that can be read with a zipfile file extension called 'CDisplay.'  In short, they're like .zip files of scanned pages, but can be viewed sequentially.

Hope that clears things up. :)


**Though for Western comics, trade paperback more describes volumes within a series or specific run (Deadpool and Cable, Ultimate Spiderman) and graphic novels are more standalone comics, like Alan Moore's Watchmen and Will Eisner's A Contract With God.

If you count ads, sure.  Otherwise it's generally 22.
