I`ve only been on the digital path for under a year so my accumulation is not so large. I`m guessing around 40 or so with no freebies.

The first thing I did when I got my PEz was import all the titles from the Baen CD's (over 50% were duplicates of my paper Library), PG accounted for another batch (favorites I read when I was young ),
Since then, it is Baen that gets the majority of my EPUB purchases.

Where's the box for under 100? I read a lot of library books, so my purchased collection is not very big.

I've just checked. I've bought around 2300 ebooks over the past ten years. I've read about 2,000 of them so far.

I certainly expect to read the rest of them.

Counting free ones, about 1500 eBooks loaded and ready.
I have probably read completely about 600. Skimmed 500 of which half are technical and saving the rest for a long cruise or in case I need to to have a reference on something.

Some of the eBooks I had already in paper form at one time or other but gave away the paper books and got the eBooks to keep.

I'm closing in on 6000. I would say I bought about 1000, and the rest are freebies or library books. Since I only delete the book when I am done reading it, and not the Calibre record, it looks bad. If I ever find myself with too much time on my hands, I might go back through Calibre and delete the books I know I will never read.

Good point. I'm hoping that screen and battery technology will improve before the e-ink based readers die out. (I'm okay with LCD based readers in the winter, but enjoy reading outdoors in the warmer seasons.)

I have about 5,000 + and about 1/3 of them were purchased and read. I have a few purchased ones that I haven't read yet, others are ones that I have read in paperback, and the last great bunch of freebies are ones that looked interesting or were ones by authors that I like or would like to try.

Probably about 2500. I don't do freebies anymore and I'm back to buying my books in hardcopies, except for ebook only novels, so my ebook acquisitions have slowed to a trickle the past several months.

I am in the 25,000+ category. Of course most of those are the PG DVD that I downloaded a few months ago. I've also a few Baen CDs and about 2000 others.

I also counted the Gutenberg disk I downloaded. They sit there on my hard drive, taking up some space that would have otherwise gone unused. It just brings me comfort to know they are there if I wanted them. Aside from that, I'm somewhere over 1,000. When I first got my Kindle, I downloaded about every free book I saw, but I slowed down acquiring books, by backlog was getting too large.
