Book Blogger Hop

Book Blogger Hop
Check out this week's Book Blogger Hop at Crazy for Books. The question this week:
How many books do you have on your 'to be read shelf'?
I currently have six books on my dresser that are in the lineup. I use the public library for most of my reading these days, so I try not to get too deep a stack going. Of course, I have nearly that many books that I'm actually currently reading, as well: one science fiction novel, one non-fiction tome, and five travel guides.

I am hopping in for the blog hop. I'm a follower, too!

I have been using the library a lot more, too, but I still have a massive pile of books to read :)

If you have time, drop in and say hi at Manga Maniac Cafe

Hey Jon!
Sounds like you have your current TBR pile under control, which is more than I can say!

Your collection of nearly 4000 books is wow! Do you have pictures? That is amazing! Have you read them all?

Hope you have a great weekend!

@Missie - 4000 was back in 1986, it's around 10,000 now. I'm only able to able to control my TBR pile by gritting my teeth, putting my hands in my pockets, and walking away empty-handed at the bookstores. It can be quite painful.
That's absolutely the first question everyone asks when they visit my library for the first time, "have you read them all?". Honestly, "No", there are quite a few of the older (1950s & 60s) books that I bought just because they needed to be added to the collection, but never got around to reading. I own them, though, if I ever need to read them. I have a few pictures I could post, but they don't really convey the reality. I may post them anyway, or take some new ones one of these days.

Just stopping by through the Hop. The amount of books you own is mind-boggling - I'm a just a little jealous, too!

Hi Jon - I am hopping by from the HOP. Love your library pictures. I have to say that my TBR pile is a bit overwelming at the moment. Luckily it is all electronic, so the space is not a problem at the moment.
