I guess I'll "fess up to being a member of the BBB club!! And I enjoy Ren Faire, and have geek tendencies!!!
As of my current inventory list of all the books I own -- I'm at 1400 -- and that does not include the 6 I bought this week, and all of the books in my DD's room (2 six foot bookshelves primarily filled with books) and my DS's room (1 4 foot shelf full plus a few piles) plus the little kid books from when they were little and I can't bring myself to get rid of.
I have a king size bed -- there is no space under the bed -- it is FULL of my books -- paperback books fit very nicely in paper grocery bags and slide very nicely under my bed -- I need more book shelves.
2 good quotes for all my "book" friends:
"Where is human nature so weak as in the bookstore?" -- Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887)
"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them." Arnold Lobel
