    When I was 18 I owned close to 400 books, and I had read 90% of them since I love to read, but I had to move and left them behind due to circumstances. In the last 4years I have built up new collection, which is about over 200 books at last count, again having read about 90% of them, the 10% being books I've just bought or ones I found a bit crap.

    I intend to own many many more.

    I'd estimate around 500.

    450 give or take on my shelves - I've read 95% of these. In boxes there are another - wild guess - 5000, of which I've read 75%.

    Roughly estimate I own 100 or so? Have read them all (many times - I need new ones) and many many more besides (maybe about 2-3 a month on average for the last 15ish years).

    I try to get rid of my books when I run out of space or get bored of them so I've probably owned easily 4-5x that number over my life.

    131, then sold them all when we left for a distant land.

    Currently 18, read them all and still buying more each week.

    I have maybe 100 books -- they're falling apart, I've had them so long. I only keep the ones I can't imagine being without, like they're parts of my soul.
    If you mean how many books that I own have I read, then all of them. If you mean how many books have I read in my life, I'd estimate at least two hundred.

    I'm not much of a book collector. I like to barrow them and check them out from the library. When I do "own" books, I give them out to anybody who wants to read them without worrying about getting them back. I probably only have about 100 of them.

    Not counting kids' books when I was a kid, I've probably read somewhere around 200 books.

    Over 2,000 at last count (about three years ago). And as I always say when asked that question . . . I've skimmed some of them. I've read a lot of them. And the others will be read soon.

    i have a little over 200 i think. A lot of them are text books, but i have basically read those, except for the calculus ones. I have read all of the novels, all the biographies/autobiographies. There are a few other informative books and self help books that i have read, and others that i have not.
