Stacy's Books

books, movies, and boy

So, how many unread books do I have?

I let you guys see my unread book wall and asked you to guess how many books you thought were in the stacks (here). Answers ranged from 350 to 1000!  As I cleaned everything up I realized that 3 books were missing from the stacks, but I can’t count them since they’re not in the picture.  Here’s the picture again…

You are looking at 769 books!  Many of you came close, but the one who was closest was Jen (Wander One Day) with her guess of 775.  She was only 6 off!  That is impressive.  Also impressive was the runner-up who was only 8 off and that was Kay (formerly of Purple Sage and Scorpions) with her guess of 761.  Jen will get to choose a book for herself from my stacks 🙂

Thank you all for humoring my yearly obsession.  One day I’ll get all of these read and they’ll move into my permanent library. Or if  I hate them I may offer them to you!

Oh, and since I took this shot a few weeks ago 4 new books have found their way into my house 🙂

  8. I still can’t get over how many books you have, LOL. Congrats to the winner 🙂
    I don’t have the nerve to count my unread books. I think I’m afraid I won’t live long enough to read them all, haha.

  9. My guess was a good bit over, but you still have a lot. Maybe someday I’ll count mine. Or better yet maybe I’ll read them.

  13. Stacy….do you have a little book obsession? LOL Well, honestly, I think I have a similar number of unread books — some are ebooks though.

    See you’ll have plenty to read in the retirement home in another 40++ years:)

  18. I don’t think I want to know how many I have in my tbr pile! I’m a little jealous that you have a room to do this in 😉 but I’m working on one of the bedrooms and hope to have two walls of bookshelves.

  19. Ha, that’s so awesome. I have almost as many unread books too! Although I’m going to try to purge some soon, cause we’re moving to a smaller apartment in September and I won’t have room for 4 bookcases :-/
