    Are you a bibliophile like me who cannot part ways with your books even though you've read them many times over?

    I counted all the books I have in my bookshelves (yes, I have more than one bookshelf because I'm secretly a hoarder) and the total number of books I counted was in the 220+ range which I did not think was a lot. Suffice to say, my parents did not share the same views.

    So, tell me how many books you own. Is my number smaller or bigger than yours?

    Yes i am a bibliophile, yet I actually have sold some of my old books which I have outgrown, I still have over 100 books which i will never part with, I don't have as many books as you but if I didn't sell my others, I would have definitely had 300+,

    I'm not sure on an exact number, but I'd venture to say I'm in the 10-20 category. I'd love to get to the point one day where I have my own personal library, with some wooden bookshelves and hundreds of books strewn about. I just think that'd be a really cool concept. Who knows, maybe it'll happen one day? For right now, my collection is contained to a smaller, metal, book car. It serves it's purpose, but I could always use some more books.

    I have more than 20 books in my library, But I still don't read all of them. After I reading all I will bring some others.

    I have more than 60 books in my shelf and just bought all of it last year (SALE). Since I've been busy in adulting, I just recently got time to buy and read books of my interest. I really love hardbound books but I also have paperback as it is easier to carry when I'm out of town. :thumbsup:

    I never really thought about how many books I have owned before but after counting I was kind of surprised. 116 books are kind of a lot.

    I had a library with about 250 books. Only after reading all the books 5-6 times from it, I did not touch the books more than to remove them from the dust. I came to the conclusion that I was just confusing my space and that I should have new books to read. So I donated all the books and bought some more. Now I think about 60 books. And I buy whenever I find an interesting book. I didn't get to read each one 5-6 times...:) I like to read at least a few pages before going to bed. And there are days I spend on the couch, reading. Of course, for this reason, I borrow books from the library.

    I love books, that are one reason why people save their books is to use them as reference materials. People whose job training included studying a lot of textbook material may save some of those books for future reference.

    I've been a bookworm ever since I was a child. I've collected many books and I always got one for my birthdays. So I guess I got atleast 20 now. Of course except for my school textbooks and university books.

    I don't own a lot of books because I don't like reading. It makes me fall asleep.
