I envy those people who could buy books as much as they please. In my case, I've only managed to own at least more than 5 books, but still less than 10 in total. But trust me, I've read a lot more than what I own.

I don't think the books I own are more than 20. But the few I do have are the ones that have had such profound impact in my life and I tend to read over and over with time. So as you may imagine, they're quite worn! But I love reading, so I use the library alot for the rest of the books, or borrow from friends.

I have, probably more than 20 books on my shelves and I've given most of my old ones to charities. I've been skimping out these days tho, in favour of Wattpad and other ebooks.

My physical books are around 350. My ebooks are twice that I think 😅

There are too many to count them. Although now I desperately need to count them all...I'm guessing around 300 physical books.

I'm not sure of the exact number, but it was over 700 the last time I counted! I've given away books and bought more since then, though, so I'm not completely sure!
