How many books do you get/buy in a year?
For myself, I try not to purchase more than a couple of books a month, though I admit to purchasing more than that when I see books that I just need to have. Sometimes it’s because I’ve come upon a collection of Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys books, and there are several I don’t own. Other times, it’s because beautiful new editions of books I love have been released.
I also like to buy books for other people, and now that I have nieces and nephews, there are lots of great books to buy for them. It’s a great excuse for me to wander around the children’s section and reminisce about books I enjoyed as a child. Just this week, I purchased some board books that one of them will be getting for Christmas. Assuming I can keep from giving them that long.
That probably means, that overall, I purchase around 100 books a year. It seems like a lot, but I swear it’s not.
