    i thought the first 4 were legitimately good, then the quality dropped off after Rowlings started rolling in dough (wtf-ending).

    i've actually read a lot more books than i've bought. i figure once i own my own house/appartment, i'd start building up my library.

    Thats quit a list. You put Irving down, have you read a Prayer for Owen Meaney? That's probably my favorite book ever written.

    And Death of a Salesman is not a must read. I hated that play with a passion.

    This would take too long to write... SOOO....

    One sec.






    The classics are mostly buried in there I promise xD. Although I don't have any pics of my other bookcases. If I find my digital camera and remember I'll grab a pic of my other ones lol.

    Harry Potter's not bad... It's not really great, but it *is* creative, and it really is intended for kids. (tbh, I remember reading it for the first time and thinking it was childish... When I look back on it, I realize I must've been 8 or 9 at the time. -_-;; )

    While my mom did buy me my first books of the Magic of Xanth, Wheel of Time, and Discworld (bookstore workers' recommendations ftw!), I'd still say I have them of my own choice. They're all long series that I continued to read and still do, even after reading one book. There's Lord of the Rings... Incarnations of Immortality... those Al Franken and Stephen Colbert books that I think are so hilarious... and a bunch of books from when I was a lot younger. I don't buy a lot of books nowadays, or even read them; those that I do read are usually my dad's current events books that he has or hasn't yet read. I think I enjoyed some of them, and got more value out of them, than he did.

    I feel lazy. ._.;; Although I'm also unwilling to count all the kiddie books that I bought for myself years ago, which are fairly numerous.

    My book collection, that I actually own, is lacking diversity.
    I just own about 50 Animorphs/Everworld books. ($100 to anyone who actually read those series to the end, cause I could never find the last few of either)
    Then just about everything I could get from Tolkien. (Silmarillion included)
    And, well, a boatload of educational/training manuals.

    If it makes me look any better, which is nigh impossible considering the stuff above me, I have read a great deal of "classics" while in school and college. Just never owned them.

    Couldn't you just go to a real library instead, or Barnes and Noble?

    Wait, I thought it was books that you bought for yourself, not that others bought for you? If it's just books you OWN, then... well, I have more boxes of children's books packed away than would fit in my bedroom. They're so lovely. <3 I wouldn't count manga, though. (Have too much of that from before I knew about pirating. I'm giving it away to my cousin.)

    Martyr - I was so happy to see the Wheel of Time and Piers Anthony books there. (I'm weird.) XD

    I had a pic showing the crapload of books I had stacked on my bed/desk as well (normally I sleep on mattress on the floor :P I know, I'm strange). Only lets me post 4 pics at a time though so I said meh, and didn't bother posting.

    I wanted to get into WoT but the author died. It would just bother me reading an incomplete series.
