Follow Friday.....

This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread.  We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back.  And now for this week's question....

Q:  Go count the number of unread books sitting on your shelf. How many?

A:  Oh my, are you sure you want me to do that?  I have three floor to ceiling bookshelves and one half bookshelf.  So after a half hour of counting I came up with around 450.  I kid you not and I'm embarrassed to have that many books sitting around.  Thank heavens you didn't ask how many unread digital books I have!


  1. Uh... wow.
    You're making me feel FABULOUS about my 60-70 unread :D

  5. Holy tilido! Over 400 books! You better get spine craking, lol. I have around 50 that I hope to read before buying anymore... we'll see how long THAT lasts.

  6. That's absolutely crazy! Now I really feel good about my rough 50... But I also envy your number of books. My parents will kill me if I spend that much on books... But if I buy them secretly...

  7. Hopping through. Wow, that's a lot of books. I hope to have tons of books lying around some day but I'm too cheap right now.

  8. Good morning - new follower (thanks for stopping by).

    I'm all for the long TBR list . . . gives us something to do if we win the lottery, or if civilization breaks down into some post-apocalyptic dystopia. :)

  9. Holy cow! That is the highest number I've seen so far! And I wish I had shelves that tall! And room for that many shelves!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  10. Wow! that's a huge number, lots of luck with your pile.

  11. Hello everyone and thank you for commenting! Yes, it's a crazy amount of books but luckily I won a good chunk of them or paid only 5 cents for. So the pile didn't cost a lot, but I do realize I'll never read all of them. I think that this summer I'll have a massive contest and give away a few boxes of books just to clear off some shelves.

  12. Old follower hopping through. That is a big number but at least you will never be short of books to read next. Good luck tackling that pile! :)
