Thread Starter 
Good morning my dear friends… ...... with some rushes but Mr Monday is arrive!....


Today ( and From now until the end of times ) I have the privilege to post here your daily question for the Lounge… I want to mention that all questions here are just for the unique porpoise of fun and of course, to stay in touch with all members, and to know what do you think about it… of course sometimes some questions are a kind of silly but funniest in the bottom!..… so lets begin…

(thank you Katie for thinking of me as Mr Monday!........)


- How many books do you have? Do you have your own library? Do you like to re-read a same book? Wich title is this?

I have too many books to count.
I wouldn't consider my collection a library.

I re-read a lot of books, mostly the Sword of Truth series, and the Narnia books.


Isn't that three questions, Rigel?

I have too many to count as well..I don't re read them though. I read them once then display them with pride. Weird I know.

Currently I am reading one called "The Gathering" and "The Wealthy Barbor". I am about halfway through The Gathering and I am still not into it.

I used to have a lot of books but it was expensive to ship all of them across the country so I settled on 50.

I re-read a lot of my books.

I can't even begin to count how many books we have in our house! Oh yeah, I reread a lot of my books like Charles Dickens, THE CAT WHO mysteries, Martha Grimes.........

I too have hundreds of books in my library. In fact I alphabetized my paperbacks (scary I now). I have about 75 gardening books and many are refered to quite a bit!!

I've got a bunch of books. Nowhere near a library. I don't re-read them, the ending is spoiled.

I love to read but I never keep my books. I can only read them once. So I either donate to our local Library or the hospital. Mostly the hospital.

I have a few books, and I do re-read them after a year or so, especially if I am bored

The odd occasion I will buy a new one....I love reading books from either Jane Green or Marian Keyes.

I have books, too many books and I ran out of shelves some time ago. I have a few I read over and over again mostly from my younger years. Lot's of fanticy, a few sci fi, and alot of non fiction.

Unfortunatly I lost my dictionary again.

I have too many books to count. I want to set-up a half library at some point but have not gotten around to it. I usually read a book once but keep it to loan out. I do re-read some of the classics though.

I love books!!! I have a collection of favorite authors, that I collect their books, but I'll read mostly anything... I just love to read. I also like to reread books. Now, my DH doesn't really care to read, unless the net counts as reading.

As many other posters have replied: "Too many to count, but not quite a library." 4 floor-to-ceiling shelves completely filled. However, large items, such as cookbooks, textbooks, binders, etc that take up a lot of room.

I like Harry Potter, actually, and I re-read it frequently. I also enjoy John Donne and Shakespeare - renaissance lit in general.

I have tons of books, anytime we go to a yard sale or Goodwill I'm always picking up a new book or two. I re-read them all after awhile but the only ones I read over and over again are usually dog or horse training books.
post #18 of 26
I have quite a few books. A good portion are school books that I wish to keep. I need to get a book shelf or something to store them on!!!

post #20 of 26
In my basement, I have a 15 foot long wall that is floor to ceiling shelves filled with books. (I also have several big boxes of books ) There are many text and medical reference books, but most are fiction, both paperback and hardcover. I love to re-read quite a few different books. My all-time favorites are Mary Stewart's Arthurian Saga, "The Crystal Cave", "The Hollow Hills", "The Last Enchantment" and "The Wicked Day." I've lost track of how many times I've read the series.....it's about time to read it again I also love to re-read Tad Williams' "Tailchaser's Song", which is a wonderful story about cats!

I use to have many more books then I do now but scaled down a lot when I moved into my loft 3 years ago. However the books I do have now are my favorites so I re-read them each every couple of years..
My favorite book I guess would have to be Cabal by Clive Barker.

I don't buy many books anymore instead I borrow them from the library and if I do like them and think I may read again then I will buy it..
post #22 of 26
I love to read! But I do not buy books often and I usually do not keep them. I probably have 20-40 books around. Some are special that I do reread and some are informational books and not stories.

Oh, I LOVE "The Wicked Day"!! That is what got me into the Arthur ledend to begin with. And "Tailchaser's Song" is incredible! I don't even know how many times I've read that one. Have you ever read a book called "The Wild Road" by Gabriel King? That is similar to Tad Williams' book.

Oh, to answer the question, I have a TON of books and I do reread them. In fact, I'm in the process of unpacking yet another box of books from my house and am rereading each one at work before I put it in the bookcase. Some of them I haven't read for 15-20 years (books from my parents house) so I don't remember a lot about them before I start.

I don't even know how many times I've read "Gone with The Wind", but enough that I had to buy a new copy!

Thanks for the recommendation! I love pretty much all books, but to find another one that's similar to one of my favorites would be great! I'll be looking for it on Wednesday (my day off!)

i have around 1500 books and about 500 of those are hardcover. certain authors i only buy hardcover and most of them are signed, like Terry Goodkind, Robert Jordan, George R.R. Martin, Dean Koontz, Clive Barker, Anne McCaffrey, John Sandford and lots more.
paperbacks i usuallly pass on to friends when i'm through. there's still about 500 i haven't read. once i get through those i want to re-read a lot of them.
