About meLondon-based. Assuming a life expectancy of 90, I will read approximately 5,000 books in my lifetime. I blame the internet.

About my libraryMy library grew the fastest when I was at school and I had the time to read continuously. I've kept a book log since 2005, and my previous reading pace of 250 books a year dropped off to a low of 20 at university before I set an annual target of 60, which I mostly meet. Getting a Kindle Paperwhite in 2016 caused the number of books I bought to explode without increasing my reading pace much, but it saved on wall space significantly.

This library currently catalogues every single physical book that I own and have read (with the exception of some of the reference tomes). I have a separate library for books that I own and have not read. A seven year battle to get this down to something manageable has gotten it down to about 90. When it reaches "small enough to fit in a box", I will combine them all and add my eBook collection. And then the work will be complete.
