When we visited the Library of Congress we were told that Thomas Jefferson had about 6500 books in his personal library. Well Mr. Jefferson I am fast catching up with you, with the latest quantum leap in my collection (around 85 books) coming from the windfall I had this Saturday from the book sale at the Way Public Library. Now I have around 100 physical books and around 50 books on my Kindle, taking the total to a staggering and earth-shattering number of 150+ books. (Just kidding 🙂 )
Jokes apart, in my whole lifespan even if I am able to read one-fourth the number of books which Jefferson had I will consider my life well spent.
