Thom, this may be an odd question, but exactly how long, as in length, are you buying and how many books fit in that length? The reason I ask is I am trying to figure out about how many bookcases I need for the books I have in storage. My cases' shelves are 30 inches long and I've got about 575 books in storage, a mix of paperbacks and hardcovers. I might be moving soon, so I want to figure out how much space I'll need. Aren't we bibliophiles something? I'm more concerned about wall space for my bookcases in my new house than anything else! lol

Thom Swennes (Yorrick) | 566 comments Joseph, here in Holland you often come across book markets that don’t price the books individually but you choose the books you want (paperbacks and bonded). When you go to pay, the books are stacked and measured. Generally the prices are between 10-20 Euros per meter. If your stack is less than the meter, you just pay the percentage. Books come in all sizes and shapes so the number of books can vary greatly. I use “yard” loosely to give on that these books are bought by length and as an expatriated American know the trouble most Americans have in converting into the metric system.
