Last summer during some bad weather, the kids and I created a data base inventory of the books in the house (with the exception of one shelf of children's books--the weather improved before we finished). This totally satisfies that hidden librarian inside me. I can now sort by genre, author, title and several other categories.
We have at least 1920 + books in our house.
Children's Books : 641 +
Fiction (including adolescent, YA and the classics) : 618
Memoirs/Biographies : 56
History : 120
Politics : 27
Religion : 156
Science : 23
Writing : 14
Geography/Travel : 63
Reference : 60 (yes, we still have a set of encyclopedias)
Other (cooking, music, philosophy, photography, etc . . .) : 141
But you don't really want to know that. So, on to the good part . . . the announcement of the winner of a box of my books. The winner is . . .
Congratulations! Please send me an email with your information so that you can receive your new books!
