13531 items right now, I have a couple thousand more than haven't been added but some are duplicates.

Have I mentioned I love calibre? Screw directories file trees... life wouldn't be the same without this software. So many features, one day I am going to run a server to share my library and book scarcity will not be an issue for anyone ever again. Once we figure out the food thing life on this planet should be pretty swell <3

There is a guy on reddit using calibre to organize 30,000 items and I think he has more now

30k is trivial- a search of this board will find claims of 300K or more books in calibre

& it seems to be bad form to ask if they were all legit purchases, or if they plan to live another 3000 years to actually read them

We are talking about Calibre LIBRARIES. Where does this requirement that we should limit our libraries only to books we will definitely read. Or its corollary, that we should feel guilty if we have more books than we can read, or if we decide that a book we have will never be read.

I suspect most of those with truly large libraries acquired them in the old days when attitudes to piracy were a little different, and publishers had little or no interest in ebooks. Many also take advantage of the very good public domain ebooks which are now available from various sources.

56,000 items maybe in US Public Domain. I would likely be satisfied with *only* those books to read. There is such an awesome amount of material before we die let alone TV and soon VR content. Makes me giddy

I want it all simply because I can have it all. Why not? Sure, the destruction of society is unlikely but what about destitution? That isn't too far off the charts of possibility. There is nothing wrong of having 'too much' of an infinite resource but too little of the same is borderline irresponsibility.

I may have brought that too far. But like I said... thinking about it makes me giddy!

Public domain? I've got nearly 700 books in my library that are manuals downloaded from manufacturer's websites. (And probably a few hundred more in my calibre library at work.) I doubt these would be considered public domain, but I'm also sure it's not a copyright violation to collect them. (Yes, I've probably at least skimmed most of those, and likely at least touched the related device.)

Calibre has been great for organizing material like that, as well as adding notes and tags where the manual's title doesn't match the device's part number(s).

How large is your Calibre library?

This is exactly my line of reasoning.
