Books and reading are my hobby. I've never counted my book collection, although I do have it catalogued, but I imagine that I own hundreds. My www.weread.com profile has 4,374 books on it - and almost 2,000 of those are books I've read! (The others are on my 'to read' list.) I started reading when I was something like 4 , with Anne of Green Gables and Alice in Wonderland, and I haven't stopped since.
I've recently started following the very entertaining Cake Wrecks blog, and I discovered this older post that just made me smile...cake tributes to children's books! The Very Hungry Caterpillar is great!
