Is it a Library?!? Giveaway

Posted 23 August, 2022 by Brandee @ (un)Conventional Bookworms in Reviews / 8 Comments

Do I have enough books in my home “library” to be considered a library? This question was posed following an article I saw back in July while I was attending Book Bonanza. I can’t find the article, try as I may, but I did find a New York Times article about the subject, which you can find here. Here’s the definition, according to the article:

“Mr. Byers cited a common belief that 1,000 is the minimum in any self-respecting home library. Then he quickly divided that number in half. Five hundred books ensure that a room “will begin to feel like a library,” he said.”

So I counted my books. It was rather a herculean task! LOL And I absolutely have enough books to constitute a library. 😉

After I tallied them all, I decided to have a little fun here with y’all. Below is a video of my home library. In the comments, leave a guess at the number of books I own and the commenter closest to the actual number will win a $5 gift card to their favorite book retailer.

Once a winner is announced, I’ll let y’all know the exact number. 😀
