Do you own many books or do you prefer to borrow them from people or the library?

I own a lot of paperbacks by different authors. Among them are Jude Deveraux, Judith McNaught, Dan Brown, Mitch Albom and Nicholas Sparks. I love the novels written by these authors. I think I have around 75 of them. Then I have my books from my online studies, most of them are related to Child Psychology. I think I have around 20 of them. Plus all the cookbooks. When I moved to my own home, I would probably make a library for these books. That way, I can preserve them. Have a great night!

I own quite a few, in fact I'm not even sure how many are in the house. I read that having a house full of books was good for kids. We also visit the library on a regular basis. Matt

I own many books that I have not paid for yet! I do borrow books from the library. Just only every blue moon or so..

We have lots of books in the house, all of us in the family, likes to read. It varies from academic to fictional books. For me, I prefer to owned a book than to borrow books from other. But sometimes, we do borrow as well, and if its happen to be a great book, we will buy it, and add to our collection.

Hi Erin, I have more than 300 books, and almost about 100 of them not read yet. We have these booksales almost every month; I can't resist them, and keep buying whenever I find any book to add to my collection. I seldom borrow books from people and never from the libraries. Our libraries here are simply hopeless- except for the British Council, and the Lincoln Centre, the rest of the libraries are not even worth visiting!

At last count i had over 300. Since then i have gotten rid of some and added new ones so i am not sure how many i have now. I don't usually like to borrow because if i really like it i hate giving it back.
