THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: How many books, approximately, do you think you have in your personal collection?

Answering number 1) I am reading Mabinogion translated by Sioned Davies.

I picked this book from my TBR pile for the medieval section of The Literary Movement Challenge, it also will stand in the Pre-Printing Press Challenge so three challenges at once – there’s a bonus:) The book consist of a collection of old Welsh tales taken from an oral tradition.  there are dragons,witches,shape shifters and many other strangeness, also knights, damsels, kings and queens, quests, honour and revenge. The list expands daily, all great fun. I am enjoying at moment about half way through.  I will be posting when it is finished.

Random question: I think it is somewhere between 6-7 thousand.  I haven’t bought them all you understand I have inherited many.  I guess I have probably bought about half that number.  Time is too short at my age to stop and count them!
