I have saved every book that my first born owned and we are constantly adding to the list. I know we have hundreds on the book shelf and all within reach of the children. I encourage them to read or at least try and hope that it teaches them to love books. I read to them always and then have them 'read' it back to me in their words. I feel it helps their creativity and shows them that books are fun!

I have the same problem. I think it started when I was a kid I aways wanted my own library. I dreamed of having walls of mahogany shelves full of books and one of those ladders with wheels. <br />
I think that might have something to do with my enormous book collection.
