Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets - J.K. Rowling

I think if I listed all the titles in our library (yes, there is enough to fill up an entire room with nothing but bookshelves), it will take up at least 10 posts. PCT and I are bibliophiles, and we'll probably be killed by our books burying us alive.

HA! Same here. I mean, I can post the fraction of my collection I brought to college, but I really have two half bookshelves, books on my dresser, ect. They are all over the place and since mom's "condensing" her collection, I've been taking some of those books. (She has enough to fill a room).

Pictures might be a good idea if you have too many to list!

Later,

Likewise! Big Grin

I have most of my books in the hall in floor-to-ceiling shelves, there's about 5k there, then there are more in my room (like 5 shelves worth) and then there's the one in the dining room...

I need a bigger house so I can have a library too! Big Grin

I don't have that many at home, and only a few here, but then, I'm 18 and in college. But, at home, it would take up LOTS of posts, without adding the ones from my dad's library. There's probably 2,500 books in my dad's house, between his, mine, and my brother's. I LOVE to read. I'm a fantasy/sci-fi fan, personally.
