Choko (chokog) | 5327 comments With over 3 000 books on my shelves I decided to make a dent in it 😊...

My goal is to read only books which I own, so I can give them away or check them off my list, with the exception of the new books of favorite authors or toward series I follow, which I will promptly purchase...

I really, really need to make a dent in what I own already so I can move them on to other people's homes.... I am drowning in books - between me and my dad, we just never stop reading... But I am sure you can do it, Mayim! Just don't look at the pretty, new, shiny ones out there!!! :):):)

No such thing! Just a bit ... challenging, but never terrifying!!! More like a mountain of chocolate which we will have to pace ourselves to eat and have to stack-up on milk and/or alcohol to make the experience more pleasant:):):):)

Laura (lauradragonchild) | 6215 comments Wow Choko! 3000 that you own! And I was thinking my 1200 and something is a lot!
And you know what that means? That I can keep on buying! 😁

You're doing great cutting them down by the way. I'll try and follow your example.😘😘


message 15: by Frank (new)

Frank | 669 comments Choko, it is impossible for me to read everything I own, much less part with them!!.
8,000 last count, which I don't put on Goodreads. Would take too much time, then I would't be reading. LOL.

Hahaha!!! Yeah, my father and I constantly give cartons of books away to books sellers or nursing homes or the YMCA book fair... Otherwise we really would drown in them... Our house is not that big:):):)

Zaara | 4193 comments Heh, I'll give you the "deeply feeling" part. Sometimes this quality can engender the most stupid rush of human fellowship feelings...which then will lead you to doing the most spectacularly idiotic things.
But sweet? No...no...my love, don't you know I am so totally the Evil Queen that @Fimbar always calls me Oonagh???
But what if I DID know what I was saying and why? Would that make it any different?
Suppose it would...
Someday you must talk more with me about your esoteric studies and your readings on philosophy. And I'm genuinely interested. I'm not just simply saying this.
Btw Bridgertons series is perfect for you, right now...so hope you are reading the second book with us.
