The Great Gatsby Obsession

I am not at all the sort of person who buys multiples of books, nor do I reread. I tend to give the book one read through and then it gets a place on my book shelf. Even many of my favourite books have only been read once. But for some reason The Great Gatsby was different. Not only have I read it countless times but I also can't resist picking up another copy when I see a different cover. I know that it is a very obvious book to like, but I genuinely enjoy it so much! 

As you can see, I am building up quite a collection! 
This was my first copy of The Great Gatsby which I bought when I studied it for A-Level
I love these Penguin covers- I would love to build up a collection of these! 
I found this in Selfridges- It was amongst other books with covers in a similar style
Another brilliant cover and it's in hardback! 
A beautiful cover, the metallic curves catch the light too! 
One of the less abstract covers but equally as beautiful
This for me is the original Gatsby cover and I love it! I have seen many poster versions of it and it may soon find it's way into my room! 

So that is my collection so far and I can't see myself stopping anytime soon!
