I knew there were a lot, but I estimated that we owned about 1000 books between us. Having counted up 1119 on this inventory, I realise that it's more like 1500. About 200 of those counted are shared and around 60 that ended up on the inventory are actually Martin's, so if you give me half of the shared stuff, then I'm ringing in with over 950 volumes.
Man! That's a lot of books. Most of them are not touched from one year to the next.
I've taken a list from the inventory page containing all the things I want to read up, where they're listed that is. That'll be helpful in deciding what to read or study next anyway. There are a lot to get through, but I'll talk more about plans for those later on.
I still have magazines and notebooks to count up as well! Eeeeek!
