Drive by update

I have a million things to do, but I got briefly side tracked reading an old journal, and I would like us all to coo over how adorably amazed 14-year-old rainbowstevie is by the size of her book collection: "After I cleaned up my room, I decided to list all the items in it. I listed stuff like magazines as one item with a number in parentheses, but each book is listed individually -- around 150 of them(!!)"

*looks at current collection of 600+ and chuckles*

(I would still have that list if my stupid unstable 90s computer wasn't so prone to meltdowns/crashes and erasing all the data on its hard drive. I couldn't even have saved it on a disk, since lists were so much more fun to make in Microsoft Bob, so that's where it was. But maybe that's a good thing. 29-year-old me would probably just get upset about all the toys I no longer own.)

ONLY 600 books?

Haha, fair question. I recently read about a Hoarders episode where a couple had half a million books in their house. Clearly my collection will always be small potatoes.

That's even more than I have. I probably have somewhere around 2000 books in my library.

So jealous of your 600 book collection!

To be honest, after the past 24 hours (I have a post coming up about this), I am rethinking how proud I should be of this fact, at least until I own more than 1.5 bookshelves or more than one room. They are nice, though, if I had the space.

Maybe I should offer my services in teaching people how to triple their book collections in one year or less for under $100. That's a thing people need, right? ;)
