I have over 3500 SFF books in my personal collection.  I've wasted too much time looking at bookshelves with 30 romance books listed.  So:  tell me how many SFF books you have listed and I will look at your shelf.

Edit - my shelf is now 153 of 176 SF/F

3500 SFF books is an impressive collection!  My 500-odd is looking a little skimpy...

36 of my books are SF, fantasy, or horror. More mysteries than that, I tend to hang on to the SF.

87 sci-fi, all are Super-heroes, both Marvel and DC comics!  I will be adding another 25 books later today...that is if I get them all in todays mail!:)  So Deborah, what books make up your 3500 books...what is your favorite reading book?

I have 70 Science Fiction/Fantasy out of 229 when I used the filter by genre option. I am still working on reclassifying a few books that either did not have a genre or were in the wrong genre.

Currently about 14. My shelves/boxes at home hold a significant amount more, I am slowly woking these into the system. Check back often, i have lots to go!

Well, I would have guessed more.  But currently 15 SFF.  I tend to keep SF.

Ran onto a post today, a thread about the strangest book on your shelf.  The member: mattc (Matt C.) mentioned having a lot of unusual SF.  I scanned his shelf, and he had guite a variety of older SFF.   Went back to check.  Looks like 80 of 137 are.

I only have 7 on my bookshelf right now, but I'm adding a few more and I'm currently weeding out my books, so I hope to have more soon.
