While I know it's not impossible to count all of my books, I believe a good answer would be A LOT. There's many I haven't read, mostly the non-fiction books, but a hefty few I have read and loved. I believe they're gaining value the longer I own them. Even though I have little space I still find myself digging through the plentiful selections at second-hand stores. They're still good, people!

I have not counted my books. I think it is more than a hundred books. I purchased books once in a year when several bookstores come to Rodrigues Island to sell their books. We have only one public library and a mini bookstore selling clothes also. Therefore we haven't many books here.
I download many ebooks and read from my smartphone and laptop.

If I like a book, and know someone who might enjoy it as well, I pass it on. I don't know how many books I would have if I didn't give many away. On my shelves right now there are probably around 200. I have over 600 on my Kindle if that counts. I've read quite of few of those as well. Love books.

I own less than 10 and half of those are reference and field guides. I have a serious pass it along habit. If I didn't like it, I trade it in for something new and if I did like it, I hang on to it until someone seems like they would enjoy it and pass it along.

Between physical books and ebooks, I'm sure I currently have at least 200 titles. Since I live in an apartment, I have limited space for books. So, I've had to shed some from time to time to make room for new ones. Cost is also an issue. So most of the books I've read over my lifetime have come from the library.

I own thousands of books, maybe a hundred are my favorites though =)
I also think one can never have too many books.

I probably have around a hundred books at this time. Every year we go through our books and clear out a bunch to be donated. That way I have more room for new books.
