My shelf has grown to over 200 now and always looking for more. I thought this would be a fun topic.

I mostly have books I have snagged from my dads house..little mysteries that I don't read but people do occasionally order one from me.  I must have a few hundred  tc books I haven't read yet but we are going to move to Ca sometime in the next few months and I have them packed in boxes.

I think I have a little over 10 on my shelf but I haven't read any of them yet.  I think I have close to 300 TBR books.

0 on my shelf, but over 30 sitting on my desk waiting to be read.  I hit the jackpot at my FOL store last week.

Of the 298 books on my TBR bookshelf are at least 54 books that are True Crime. Those number tallies are not accurate though as it does not include books that I had previously, have bought from stores (Books-a-Million, BN, Zooba, etc ) , and the books that I have received as part of a "for" deal. Together I have upwards of 650 books.

Sometimes I feel so completely overwhelmed and say that I will weed them out, but, alas, I cannot bring myself to adopt out/donate any of the books that I have not read.

I guess this could be explained as an addiction and I should seek help, but short of being crushed by falling shelves I cannot see the danger in this addiction. LoL

Anyone else have this most Wonderous problem?

Happy Spring to All,    :o)Michele(o:

I have about 1500 books all together and always looking for more!!!!   It is definately an addiction, but a great one. As you said Michelle, I see no danger (except maybe to the dog who is small and sometimes I lose him in  the bookroom!!!)   I have over 600 keepers and hundreds to be posted, just finding the time is almost impossible.

I think I have about 15 or 16 true crime books on my shelf at this moment.  I use to devour these booka at one time.  Now I only read one once in awhile so I'm  willing to part with them.

A friend gave me a bunch of books that she no longer wanted and I found around 15-20 true crime books in among the others.  They are all on my TBR pile so I will be reading them here and there.

I can't even count how many are on my TBR shelf right now. Probably close to 40 or so?
