    Kids Books

    I couldn't tell you how many I have but I don't throw them away. I have shelves of books for the kids and they love them. I read to them nightly and usually there is no limit... which means it goes on and on. I encourage the kids to read it back to me even if it's baby chatter. I...

    I Love Books

    There are series I started and I know I'll never finish them, but I have to collect every book in the series. I even tend to collect books written by a writer. If I get one of his books, I'll get them all!

    Collector

    I am pretty picky about what books I'll buy and what books I won't, but I've still managed to collect a big bookcase full of books. My biggest collection would be Stephen King books.

    I prefer books any day to those silly little e-books. I don't see the point of them. They can never replace the feel, smell & calmness of a real book.
