Booking Through Thursday


Booking Through Thursday

What's the largest your personal library has ever been? What is the greatest number of books you've ever owned at one time? Is your collection now the biggest it's ever been? or have you downsized? What is the fewest number of books you've ever owned?

Since reaching retirement age my personal library is at it's largest at this time.I have now about fifty books which I own and it is growing. The fewest books I have owned is probably six a few years back, I usually went to the library.

  2. I also love the library. I usually reserve audio books so I can listen to novels while doing other things. I love my books in a way that I don't have time for ornaments or nic-nacs. Nothing nicer than relaxing with a good book and if I'm not feeling well, just browsing through an armful of books on gorgeous plants. I even love reading sock knitting patterns!

  3. I agree, the library is fantastic! Nikki, I used to not like audiobooks...until I had a long commute to work and realized how helpful it was to listen to audiobooks. Now I want to start using them again while I clean house, kind of like an incentive.

  4. Ah, I often think that having things manageable is a great goal...so far, I haven't succeeded. LOL

  5. I used to go to the library all the time. I need to start again. It's easier on the budget and when you're done they go back and don't take up space in your house!

    Here's My BTT

  6. Let me just say that my personal library has exploded since I got a Kindle for Christmas! In less than a year, I've surpassed 50 books. Before my Kindle, my personal library was probably around 20 books, but my husband has hundreds.

  7. Now that's a nice amount to have in your TBR. I wish mine was like that.

  8. I don't go to the library here because our state library isn't good... I'm sure your collection will increase now that you're no longer a regular at the library.
