I used to have a ton of books, too, but we downsized with the last two
moves. Now, I use the library a lot more, but when I buy a book, I will
donate it to the library when I visit there. They appreciate it, and they
give me a little ticket denoting the approximate value of the book. I write
them off my taxes. I think the number in 2006 was around $400. Every little

You don't have a bible in your house?
I think the latest consensus was that the Bible is not a book of law
as regarded in the conventional sense of the term. I'd be very happy
to participate in a separate thread discussing the Law vs the law vs
the New Covenant.
10,000 books Buck ? SWEET ! So you don't live
in a house, you live in a library ? :-)
There are at least that many, probably more. My wife is a Collector
Of Things, and books are just one of her desires. I can only estimate
because that was the guess when we packed them all up before moving 13
years ago. More have come in since then.
I hope Buck never asks me to come and help him move to another house.
I've already told my dear wife that I intend to die before the topic
of moving comes up again.
