Hi all,just been transfering (tx) some books to my phone and i just happened to have a look in properties and find out how many ebooks i have got.
i was very surprised too see that i have 20,000+ books in my library.
so my question is how big is yours?

cheers,mick

Holy crap!

I have a measly 89. I do get all mine from the Sony store though, and I have a monthly budget for books.

What kind of books do you have?

my book intake is usually 2/3 books a week when at home but when i am away with work (i'm in the royal navy serving on submarines)
i can usually read 5/7 a week as there is not much else to do at sea.

wow, i can't think of any place you'd need a reader more than on a submarine. not much to do, and *no* space for a big paper library. you're like the ereading poster child.

Well then check how many you've read on my 1001 books list (no I didn't create the list, I just put it on a spreadsheet). It's in my signature. I'm dying to know how many you've read.

Man, I wish I had that much time to read But not on a submarine, I'm horribly claustrophobic...

Only 37? Heh heh, as you can see I can't talk...

Cool thing about Robert Tressel. I'm jealous of Zelda- she lives in Paris so she's got Pere Lachaise AND the Pantheon, freaking everyone is buried in one of the two.

*edit* sorry I just realized I totally derailed this thread, carry on...

once i get my hands on my sony i'm really going to get stuck into that list,
its not bad on my htc but you cant really get comfortable with it and having lent a friends 505 for a couple of days i know it will be a more enjoyable reading experience.

enjoy your own attempt at the list. looking thru it there are some absolute
crackers on there including "the godfather",which is one of my favorites.

cheers,mick.

I had my compy count my ebook folder and it came up with 24,017 files in 2,382 folders.
That suprised me a lot.
If i would read 1 book each day i have them all finished in aprox 66 years and when i live up to that, i guess it would make me the oldest man alive

lets get started


take care
