    I have over 1000 hardback books. My wife has around 400. They are slowly beginning to take over the house. I have 5 BIG boxes just full of paperbacks that I have no where to put. I used to have them triple stacked on a book shelf - That shelf was kind of ratty (I had it in a walk in closet in my old place) So I left it there when I moved.

    My Friends are allways telling me to sell them at one of the many used bookstores - I cant do it - its like some kind of disease:lol: I buy up to 6 books per month (and read them)

    anyone else here a book junky also?

    I'm a serious horder of books. I've actually run out of space in my (fairly large) bedroom and have them stacked up on any spare surfaces now.

    I find compulsive readers to generally be 1) very intelligent and 2) very interesting!

    I use to read a lot of non-fiction books. I've never been into fiction much. With that said, I generally find tons of information worth reading through trade magazines and the internet. I do go through a bunch of magazines. I can read a 200-page magazine cover to cover in one sitting (a couple of hours).

    I try and read a book a month... But, everyday, I probably research and read about 20+ pages on the computer screen for politics and current events, then go and debate it.:yesway:

    I have about 4000 books in my apartment, I seldom read fiction exapt some poetry and some novells sometimes. I read about 200 books every year and when I get the money I will get some more :)
    we have a nice second hand store that sells bookracks for about 20 dolls each. so storage is no problem for me.
