Too Many Books?

Too Many Books?
In my opinion, it's not possible to have too many books! Every now and then, after I get some new ones, I have to reorganize my bookshelves, depending on what books I get. This is my Classics bookcase I'm updating in this image.

I like to have them organized so I can find what I want when I need to. When you have over 7,000 books, having them organized is a must!

These stacks represent a lot of my favorite authors - John Steinbeck (we share a birthday), Mark Twain (I was named after him), H.G. Welles, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nevil Shute and many more.

I think we never have enough shelves. But now I make choices, those I did like less and/or will never read again go to the public library so other people can enjoy them.

Some that I know I would never read again or that I have two copies of, I donate to the VA hospital.

7000 books? By reading one each day it is a little more than 19 years of reading...

I figure at least I'll always have something to read that I haven't read before, even if I don't make it all the way through reading them all.

That is an impressive collection, Kenny. And, a great idea to identify lots of them using the Note option.

I see you have one of my favourite books in your classic collection, Walden. Mine is a very old and well-thumbed copy given to me by a dear friend who passed away 4 years ago. Thank you for jogging my memory.

I'm a lifelong bookworm as well, and we have shelves full of them. Even to this day I much prefer to read from paper, than any electronic device.
