Booking Through Thursday

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)?

The largest it's been is right now. I never give books away so they seem to multiply day by day. I must have close to 2000 books right now, spread out in many different bookcases in two separate rooms.

The fewest...that's a hard one. Probably when my family and I had just moved to the US. We had lots of books, but not nearly as many as we used to have in my native country.

There are a lot worse things than having lots of books. I think having books is a privilege and even though I enjoy my e-reader, if I had to choose I would always choose books.
