[FoRK] Items you own

My wife used to be a science fiction/mystery book reviewer, and still reviews random books for our local newspaper. We have about 7,000 (or more) books. My latest bookcase project will double our hardcover capacity by adding ~100 linear feet of shelves. A typical library bookcase might have 20 or so linear feet of shelves.
And of course, that's just the hardcovers. We also have shelves for trade paperbacks and regular paperbacks. Lots of shelves. Shelves on all floors of our house. Shelves in the hall. Shelves in the boys' rooms. Shelves in the guest bedroom. Shelves in the basement (unfortunately).
So, you think you have lots of books? I'll show you lots of books....
[Our van has plates with "2 MNY BKS." Might as well be proud of your addictions. ]

Much of it is music (CDs) and some of it is DVDs (anime, mostly).
But most of it is books. If you've ever seen "Read or Die"... that's me. :-)
I've sold back maybe 150 technical books. I kept the books I didn't
necessarily need but which had little (< $5) resale value.
My parents have many books. My grandparents have no books.
My children look to be on the road of having many books.
No! Bad cow! Stop eating all of my villagers!!!
