    I am an avid reader to the point

    that I actually have read more than one book in a day. Now I read on my iPad more than physically handling books. Books are free from your local library on Overdrive and cheaper than what you would pay on iBooks.

    it doesn't matter if you have 200

    or 2000 books at home,what's important is that you enjoy reading each and every one of them over and over again and never get bored of it.

    So Many Books, So Little Time

    We've got around 2000 books between us,

    on everything from architecture to erotica, Russian novels to travelogues. We've recently started cataloging them, putting them into our own database. We've automated some of it with barcode scanning, but even so, we have a lot of older books - not just pre-barcode, but pre...

    I have probably several hundred pounds worth of

    good old-fashioned physical books... I'm tempted to say that I have a ton of them, but they probably don't weigh that much. Now that I have a kindle though, I'm rapidly amassing a digital library. There are thousands of free books available on the kindle in addition to the ones...

    Since my childhood I have dreamed about it to

    have an own library. For years ago I was able to make my dream becomes true. I moved into a new flat - big enough, to use one room just as a library. This room is filled from the floor until the ceiling with books, books, books and books again and all of them I have read many...

    Reading Is My Escape...

    I love reading, I always have. Reading is my escape, right along with music. I love reading about other peoples lives, but I also love some fiction work as well. I can promise this to the world; if it were not for books and music I wouldn't be here. Books introduce people to...

    Love Books

    I simply love books, which is probably the main reason why I eventually became a writer. I have a picture of me and my mother, when I was maybe one year old, holding a book, and giving a fascinated look. When I was about 12 years old, my mother became friends with a woman who...

    I love to read, and have a lot of books at home.

    The problem is I have only one shelf, and it's like the kind that you would see in a kindergarten room. So I basically just keep them in stacks against one wall of my bedroom.

    I Read All the Time

    Just counted a shelf to try and get an idea. Easily over 1000. Most I have read several times. This is telling me that I need to get out more. I buy rather than take out of a library as my library fines were getting a bit embarassing and I got tired of calling to find out when...
