I dream of having my own library at home, I am fond of books and I've collected few since school days.Most of the books I have are fictions,I enjoy reading them, I also have some inspirational books and some academic books.I don't sell old books,instead I buy old books that are on sale, I believe that even how old a book is, I can still get something from it. Do you dream of it too? Do you have collections now? what are the titles?

I recently had to get rid of a good deal of my books, and I'm still "thinning the herd" right now. Eventually, when I have my own house, I'm going to have a nice library. Well lighted, lined with book shelves, comfortable reading chairs and stuff, etc.

Oh my god! Yes, I would want to have a study room with a library! It would be really neat and fun. I don't think I have a collection now but I have a bit of everything and I would love to have my own comfy room where I could read all day and night (ideal life). Oh and if that library room would have a whole collection of DVDs and I could sit in there watching French movies all day, it would be even nicer.

I have $500.00 worth of Psychology books that I bought on a shopping spree at Barnes and Noble. I love to study psychology. I also have quite a few Christian books and self help books. I love to read also. I would love to be able to set up the books on a shelf in my room, but right now, I do not have enough space for that. I also have a lot of books that I would like to donate to charity. I can only read regular books once, but it is very hard for me to even consider throwing books away, so I plan to give them away.

Throwing books is a no no for me too, I would rather donate them or give them to somebody else.

i also dream of having one soon. i have many pharmaceuticla books and i dont want to dispose them because i have graduated from it. i want to store it for future references and that's when planning a small library came to my mind. a small library will include a table and chair with good lighting so that you can read comfortably. of course, it will possess a book shelves even the small size just to store your book and references. pardon me friend but i hate reading pocket books and i only read pharm books and medical books that amazes me. of course it will be better to arrange the book alphabetically and marking the front cover so that you can easily recognize it from the rest of the books.

Yes. We have a mini library at home.. mostly informative books or books in school and our encylopedias. But I don't use those books as reference anymore since I am depending on the information I get in the internet because it is more faster and you can really get what you are searching for.

No, believe it or not, hubby and I are both educators and we do not have a library in our home. We actually do not have that many books. Each of our children has a small collection in their rooms that they have amassed over their years of education. Hubby and I have the texts for the courses that we teach, but other than that, we don't have many books. We tend to utilize the library for obtaining books. We don't really have storage for a large collection in our home.

Nope, and I certainly wouldn't mind it either as at times I get so bored and have nothing to do and just end up going through every article in the newspaper due to my extreme boredom. But then again, I am not a real big reader and hence don't really find the time to read much at all anyways. But it would still come in handy at times.

Yes I have a mini library at home. It's kinda big counting at 400 books or so. I can't tell you the titles because that would be much and most of it is in hungarian wich you probably don't understand. I like reading. I hope it will never die.

About a yr ago if you would ahve asked me I would have been able to say YES I do have a mini library in my house LOL I had 100s of books...but due to finacial situations that came up repeatedly I've had to sell a great deal of my book (and movie for that matter) collection which sucks but they are all replaceable ya know....I still have a collection of books but its considerably smaller than it was 10-12 months ago...Slowly I'm building it up though..and I do have a little reading nook on the main floor..I had one up in my room too but was spending far too much time up there so I no longer do.....

I have a small library at home. I read non-fiction most of the time. I read inspirational books only once in a while because I find most of them written just to sell and earn quick money. I buy books which I can keep for long time. So I am choosy when I buy books. It's difficult to buy all the books you want to read. So I exchanged with friends too. It's mostly on Philosophy, Theology and Science... some authors include C S Lewis, Dostoyevsky, and Dickens .

I do have a mini library and I've always said when I build my own house, I will make plans for a library. I have a lot of classic titles I like, and I have bought new copies of ones I used to have as a child that I really loved. I say bought new copies because I didn't get to keep many of the books I wanted. Not enough room. The Little House Books and Anne of Green Gables were always favorites and still are.

Hello cefaz_21, I had a collection of books before but due to moving out too often after getting married, I decided to sell my books online. Right now, I only have a few books with me. When I have a bigger house later, I would love to have a mini library at home where I can spend my time reading with my son and husband in future.
