Booking Through Thursday

Booking Through Thursday is a weekly meme about (mostly) books and reading. This week's BTT asks . . . What’s the largest your personal library has ever been? What’s the greatest number of books you’ve ever owned at one time? (Estimates are fine.) Is your collection NOW the biggest it’s ever been? Or have you down-sized? What’s the fewest number of books you’ve ever owned (not counting your pre-reading years)?

I think since I joined Paperbackswap, my bookshelf is the largest it's ever been. I've probably owned over 100 books at one time, and then I try to swap some of them out to make more room. I'm desperately trying to read more quickly through my bookshelf these days in an effort to downsize, but somehow there's always another novel I just HAVE to have. The fewest number I've owned at one time is probably around 10 when I first moved into my own apartment and had a small space to keep my books. Now I've got 3 over-stuffed bookshelves to house them.


  1. I can't even estimate how many I have. Paperbackswap is a big contributor to my problems, too!

    Ubiquitous...that's books for me...Booking Through Thursday: Size Matters.

  2. My collection is just starting to grow.

    here's mine:

  3. Me too, I just Have to have so many of them :)
