I sell books for a living so I usually have at least a couple thousand from inventory and my own books which I've never counted but they are everywhere. I just thinned the herd a bit and took about 75 books to a thrift shop but as a rule I keep almost every book I've read and enjoyed. I don't pay much for them and I not only enjoy reading them but I like decorating with them. I grew up in a house full of books so they are like old friends anyway.

I know I don't have that many books. My sister I believe has over 250. We haven't counted them in forever though and the list gets bigger every year!

Wow, that is a lot to read. I have acquired quite a lot but not close to the number of your collection. I enjoy reading though, but sometimes i just borrow books from my friends. I buy ones which i really love and would love to read again.

I'm not certain of the total number, since I haven't done a complete inventory. However, I know that my library totals somewhere in the thousands. Hopefully, one of these days, I will have a space large enough to actually unbox and un-store my entire collection; at the moment, quite a bit of my collection is boxed up and/or in storage.

I used to have a larger collection than I do, but I lent a TON to my sister-in-law...which I never got back. But that's okay; room for more! My daughter has her own bookshelf in her room, which is loaded. My son has a bunch in his room. I myself have about 150 at the moment too, but my dream is to have a library of my own - a room JUST for my books, with a tradition chaise (fainting couch). When I was little, all the other little girls were sighing over how romantic Beauty and the Beast was - I was the only one drooling over the books, not the prince!

I love books...Reading, browsing or simply by just looking at them makes me really happy..I have a book collection, but I only have a few..Some of them were lost, and some of them are not mine...But if given a chance, I would like to have my own library with different books from all the parts world...by then I can store the universe in my flat..^^
