I started reading and collecting shonen-ai (and subsequently yaoi) when I was 12 with my mother’s permission (at first she didn’t know what I was reading. She didn’t mind much when she found out, she simply filtered what I bought until I was a tad older). I’m 20 now and I have 130 yaoi manga and 33 yaoi novels, totaling 163 books in all. I’m not sorry at all that I’m proud of my collection. I earned the money for them myself and it’s a hobby I can use to preserve a type of manga that is hard to find in the US due to the publishing houses closing down, and bookstores going out of business.
Pubishers include Blu, DMP/June, Deux, Boy/Boy, Oakla, Taiyoh Tosha, Chara, Teahouse, NetComic and Yaoi Press. (Sorry about the crappy mobile phone quality. My camera broke. :C)
Your hand feels cold…
