Jesus, thousands...they are everywhere. My room is full. My sisters room is full. We built an extension to our house and now thats full as well, AND I keep finding them in odd places. Its getting rediculous, so I've stopped buying them for the time being. Focus on reading some of them instead!

Yes I'd be up in the thousands too. Boxes and shelves and piles and stacks!

I had loads borrowed and never returned and several stolen, so I don't have as many as I should.

I think I have in the region of 200. Which I shifted around my lounge 5 times last night trying to fit a new sofa in the room.. glad I don't have as many as I want lol :roll:

I have a few books. I recently started living in my own place, so my stuff is my own now. I'm working on a small library for the time being, but I'm sitting at around 100, maybe a little less.

I have only few books. I have around 10 books only, and the rest of the books I read are borrowed from my friends. :D

some where between 350-400. I'm just getting started! :0) More if you count text books and devotional books.

I've never counted. A couple hundred I would guess. I have five bookshelves full.

Several hundred. Couldn't for sure exactly how many as I haven't counted them in years. All I know is I don't have a single room with books in them! 8)

6 bookshelves, some 2 layers deep. Lotsa books. I wonder if people think that it's strange when they visit... because I think it's strange to go into a house with no books visible. Anyone else feel that way?

354 to be exact - I counted today when my partner said "don't you have enough already?"

This doesn't include the childhood books my mum and dad are holding onto for me
