I only own a couple dozen that I've picked up here or there, but when I finish reading them, I give them away or trade them. I like to keep my physical possessions to a minimum.

I have a little over 300. I am a teacher though, so a big majority of my books are in my classroom library. It's easier to get one of my students hooked on a book if I can give them recommendations and short summaries. They have access to just about my whole book collection, but of course there's a select few I keep for myself.

I tried to do something similar, but got overwhelmed very fast. I have ebooks, physical books, audiobooks. Autographed books, books falling apart lol
Eventually, I'll get them all listed on my bookshelf, then maybe I'll have a good idea.

A lot lol If I'm counting just physical books, I would say roughly 200 or more. If I factor in ebooks, I'd push it to about 500 or more. I keep meaning to catalog them, but always tire out by the end of the first book case.

I can’t be entirely sure how many books I own. I have an entire book shelf and then three bags full of books in my bedroom.

I’ve made my way around the bookshelf by now and was actually wondering about any suggestions for new books to invest in.

I’m into reading murder mysteries, dystopian fiction, or historical fiction. Or just any books you’ve enjoyed and want to share! :)

I know that I own over 100. I have three big plastic tubs and a couple of shelves. Not to mention the ones that are in drawers and on tables. Love to read and any that I can buy cheap, I do.

I have around 300 physical books and over 300 e-books. I'm a member of Paperback Swap, so I have less than I used to. My husband keeps threatening to throw them away because there's so many of them. I just keep putting recently acquired ones in boxes and putting the boxes under tables or in closets, lol. I have about 100 or so that I haven't read yet.
