Book Blogger Hop ---- books, by the numbers

I haven't participated in the Book Blogger Hop for ages .....  but came across a Hop post on a blog I read, so I thought I'd participate this week.   The Hop runs from May 18-24, so there's plenty of time if you'd like to participate.

This week's question is: How many books do you own?    

I checked my LibraryThing account, and my number is: 1,042.

I'm also on GoodReads, although I use that for not only the books I own, but also the books I review (helps me keep track).   You can find me on either site, under the name Naberius.

Keeping track of my books on LibraryThing is helpful, especially if I'm trying to figure out what books in a series I might be missing.   I will admit that my bookshelves in my home library are pretty full --- but I'm not quite ready to get rid of some my books.  So, I set aside a few stacks to box up and put in the closet.   I've also declared a no-new-books rule for a while (including any used books, or library sale books) ... at least, until I can find somewhere else in the house to install some more bookshelves.  I can always dream.......

That's awesome! I would love to have so many books I didn't know what to do with them. My dream is a home library. That will remain purely a dream for awhile, I think. ...But there's always this lurking fear of fire.

Wow! That's a lot of books to own. I counted that I own 109, but that's only counting my fiction books. My husband and I have a ton of religious, text, reference, non-fiction, etc. books.
