Follow Friday (2)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee & Alison Can Read
The question that everyone was asked this week was:

How many unread books are sitting on your bookshelf right now?

I can't tell you exactly how many unread books are sitting on my bookshelves and floor right now, but I own over 1625 books and most of these are unread (I nearly always send my read books onto others), so I can safely say that I have well over 1000, yes, one thousand, unread books sitting on my shelves right now - all physical copies (hardbacks/paperbacks).

It may take me a while to read all of those...
I can't help it, I'm a complete bibliophile and a bit of a (book)shopaholic, too, but hey - you can never have too many books, can you? ;)


  1. *mouth drops at number of books you own* :O

    OMG! That's alot of books! Nice! :)

    Anna @ Literary Exploration

  3. OMG! You have a whole library!!! So jealous!lol

    SarahO. @ Krazy Elf's Bookshelf

  4. OH MY GOD! And I thought I was bad! I have over 500 including my ebooks! You better get to it!! New follower thanks to FF - Kristin from GrowingUp YA

  5. I agree with Krazy Elf I am so jealous. That is pretty dang awesome!

  6. Wow!!! That is A LOT of books. How long do you think it'll take to read all those?


    Renae @ Respiring Thoughts

  7. Wow. I can't even imagine having over 1000 unread books to read. At least you have alot of choices to choose from. Happy Reading and I hope you get that number down. =] Old Follower. =]
    My FF

  8. Oh goodness! I've only read a little over 1000 books in my whole lifetime! I wish you much luck with those books. It must look like a beautiful collection.

    Do you have any idea how to tackle all of those? Are you just going to grab a random book and read it or is there going to be some sort of system? Large numbers stress me out.

    PS. New follower!

  9. Wow. I am speechless. I definitely think you will be the winner in the most books category for this question!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm now a new follower.

  10. could be set for life. I bet they look really pretty on your shelves though!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    New Follower!

  13. Hopping by to visit and follow! over 1000 books on your tbr pile all I can say is wow!!. I try to keep my TBR low, but it gets away from me at an alarming pace. Good luck reading all of them (:
    Have a great weekend!!

    btw I loove your layout I'm obsessed with owls ;)

    I hope you can check out my blog sometime.
    ♥ Book nerds are pretty too

  14. hav a lot mostly ebooks
    300 plus

  15. Thanks for stopping by - happy to return the follow.

    I'm sure if I added my ebooks to my paperbacks I'd have 1000, but that's just too daunting a number to tackle. :)

  16. Holy Toledo! That's a ton of books! Well, if something freaky happens to the world and all the book sellers go away, you will be okay. That's a comforting feeling, right?

    Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Returning the follow and wishing you a great weekend!

  17. Wow that is quite a few books. It makes my 200 seem like nothing.

    I'm a new follower thanks for stopping by

    Have a great FF

  18. O!M!G! I was totally ashamed by how many I had unread, but dang. You made me feel much better with my number. It will be awesome to see how many of the books you make it through by the end of the year! On the flip side, your addiction supports our beloved authors, so I cannot find fault with your numbers. I look at it this way. I am in danger or running out of stories to read (eventually) and you have nothing to worry about in that department. I am actually a bit jealous. I am sure you have some books I really want in the unread pile of yours. *winks* Fabulous looking blog! New follower - and thanks very much for stopping by my blog. :)

  19. You are the champion of this FF, I believe. Over 1000!?!?! That's so daunting it's absolutely amazing! ; ) I thin maybe you deserve an award or something for that cause it's really quite awesome, in my opinion! : ) Actually, maybe you deserve the award AFTER you've read them all... ?

    Thanks for dropping by the Daily Bookmark. : ) Good luck working through that stack. ; )

    Happy Friday

    Ajoop @ on books!

  25. My mouth literally dropped a little when I read that. 1000 books!? How do you have the room for that many? I have roughly 400 and they take up a whole wall...I can only imagine what it must be like for you. Also, I love that you have only physical books/hardcovers! Call me old fashioned but I don't like reading my books off of screens.

    New Follower,
