A few
A bookcase full
A room full
My House is a Library

Too many...over the years i have scoured through second hand shops and found some rare treasures...i have books that have been passed down through the generations...paperback...hardcover...leatherbound...even a few first editions...

I have around a thousand or so books. Most are non-fiction because I like to read bits and pieces of information, sort of a trivia bank of sorts. Just a few years ago I donated a few thousand paper back novels to goodwill, it was a trek just to get the things there. Oddly, I had only read half a dozen or so of the books. They were books left at my place by random friends and relatives. If anyone ever wants to chat about mundane things, I am the guy. I don't know a lot about anything, but I know something about most things.

a few thousand, i buy a new book each week, either fiction (like Terry Pratchett) for relaxing or non-fiction (history, photography, etc.). I also collect first edition poetry books so I scour the second hand books shops for bargains when I can!

Every now and then I try to have a clear out and I'll start off with good intentions of throwing a few hundred out, but only end up throwing out about 20. Sometimes I read them again, but mostly not, so I reckon one day I'm going to have to bit the bullet and take them all down to the charity shop!
