I have over 3,500 books in my personal library. Some valued at over $1,000 that I got for a lot less. Many out of print and covering everything from art to zoology. It's nothing for me to spend $500 a month on books, all year long.
Until I moved, I was the number one customer at Page After Page bookstore in Elizabeth City, N. Carolina. And as soon as I get settled, I have my first order ready to go. If I had one continuous bookcase, it would have to be at least 21 feet long and 6 feet high. And that's jamming it full.
The only problem I have is who to leave them to when my time comes. My local library acted like it was an inconvenience to them. And I have no heirs that I would trust them to.
I've never read a book I didn't buy, and never bought a book I didn't read.
lol...Any suggestions would definitely be appreciated.
