I am a big bookworm and have grown up surrounded by books. My house growing up had bookshelves everywhere and even though their collection has gotten smaller (I took a ton of books with me when I moved out after college) my parent's house still has bookshelves filled to the top. My family loves to read.
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!!:)
