My husband also loves to read, but he's not as much of a book collector and tends to be picky in the books he owns. (He prefers only Hardback, where I will take Hardback or Paperbook-a book is a book!)
I buy lots of books and also have books sent to me for review. Plus, I have a large collection of books from my childhood that I loved and want to keep.
We have three bookshelves in our apartment (which isn't all that huge) plus I have a bookshelf at work that I keep books for my Teen Library Council to borrow.
I just counted and I currently have 300 books to his 100! When we first got married my husband made me go through my book collection and try and weed out the ones I could sell (he sold some of his books too) I'd rather swap them, but he thinks that's too much work. I know 300 isn't all that huge compared to other bloggers collections, and he's promised me that when we get a bigger place I can have more shelves and more books-really I want that library from Beauty and the Beast.
So many question is, how many books is too many? Personally, I don't think one can ever have too many!!:)
