How many books do you have?
So I was looking around my library the other day and wondered exactly how many books I have in there. I would post a picture, but it's such a mess that I'll have to clean it up first.
My best estimate is somewhere around 500. I could be low on that guess- I have a whole lotta paperbacks. If it sounds excessive to you, you must understand that it's a disease with me, this whole collecting of the books. I must own what I read, and more often than not I like to keep it when I'm done.
That said, I do plan on going through the shelves someday soon and culling the best from those that need a new home. The first of a new year is always a good time to purge!
So what about it? Do you obsessively collect or are you a good library visitor? Speaking of which, I need to renew my card...
