I probably only have about 100 books between my husband and myself. I'm not one to ever re-read a book. There are way too many books that I still want to read and will probably never get to all in a lifetime. I get a lot of my books from the library, as it is free and they don't pile up in my house. I have a few favorite books that I keep in case anyone wants to borrow or that my girls might want to read eventually. In general though, I sell some books on eBay and donate a lot of them. After reading a book, the story is in my head. I don't need to keep the actual book after that.
Now, my girls......they have a lot of books between the 3 of them. But, as my youngest daughter outgrows the younger age books, I donate them to her former preschool. I never feel guilty about buying my children books!
