How many books do you own?

I have 508. I didn't realize I had so many until I reorganized them a few nights ago. I thought I only had about 300 or so. These are mine and my husband's combined.

  • A million trillion. LOL. I don't actually know...but a lot! I buy them at thrift stores for next to nothing...and get them for a penny on Amazon. It's rediculous really. If they are cheap, I buy them. I have books that are not even relevent to me. From coping with adultery to taking care of the elderly to battling cancer...none of which apply to me but I grab them anyway. Unfortunately, I've had to throw some out recently because my collection is outgrowing my home.

  • I haven't ever acutally counted, but when we move our books take up most of our boxes lol. Probably somewhere near 600-700.

  • Way to many. I have a whole room filled with books, they are on book shelves though

  • I would guess around 100 -- then my 2yr old has around 50-60 of her own. I have a sony reader now that currently holds another 100 or so books though, do those count? :)
