Can one have too many books, more than one could possibly read?Can one have too many books, more than one could possibly read? Matthu #questionnaire
More than they can read, yes…too many…of course not.?
Exactly my thought
More than you can read? Yes. Is that too many? No.
I say no. The military movers over the last 20 years would disagree. When they packed up 98 boxes of just books, they nearly mutinied.
I found my boxes got smaller as I was more the muscle
I think I have more than then I can read but I just like looking at them. Am I a sick puppy?
In fact I know I have more than I could read.
I have more than I could possibly read but it is not too many
Me too, but I plan to give it a shot!
No, and whoever tells you that is wrong. You don’t need that negativity in your life.
No, you may have books for reference (most scholars have a lot), you might collect books for various reasons such as cooking, etc.
I guess you can say I collect books on metaphysics religion and fringe science
Absolutely no way
I am also a record collector so I have to save space
Yes, but who cares!
I have so there is only one answer to that?
Don’t be ridiculous ??
There are never too many books.
Trick Question – LOL
Oh yeah ?
No such thing, it’s all in your mind 😉
There’s no such thing as having too many books ?
I definitely have a good amount of books and probably won’t stop buying them
Never. If anyone tells you otherwise, they must be running a fever.
Books are like love. You can never have to much or too many..
There’s never too many
Maybe. I haven’t reached this point yet lol
never have enough…:-)
Yes. There can never be too many books, but there can be too many for you to possess.
I believe everyone should have at least a small bookcase. Avid readers should have a large bookcase, or two of hard cover editions of their faves, . . . keeping the small bookcase for reads in progress.
To fill bookcases with paperbacks is just foolishness.
Paperbacks decompose, . . . rapidly. They are made with low quality paper, ink and glue.
Paperbacks are not an investment and they are not a collection, . . . they are a hoard. ?
I just had a tough day, helping my elderly uncle move his books… ?He would not even let us throw a scrap of paper, forget donating any books. He held on even to magazines from the early 2000s . I suggested we sort through the books, keep the good stuff, donate what he won’t read and discard old textbooks etc… No luck!!
This is why I love ebooks
That’s easy…. NO!! ?
I have spoken to my grandchildren about distributing the books after my demise.
No, there is no such thing as too many books.
That is usually the case. The Japanese have a word for it. Tsundoku
Very rarely do you run into a silly question. Almost all questions have some form of value. Almost all…
I think I’m in that situation now. Yikes!!!!!!!!!
Yes but also no lol Like, physically- yes, but not ever enough to fill my heart ?
I do and I love it
No such thing!!
That’s a very good question. I have over 4600 ebooks on my tablet. And I tend to read very long books. I’m currently reading a biography of Hitler (1300+ pages) and a biography Che Guevara (1000+ pages). I most likely won’t get completely through all of my books (I have physical books as well as ebooks) before the end, but I’ll give it my best shot.
