    Default Just counted my ebooks

    Over 300,000 non-fiction, about 150,000 fiction, and dozens of magazine series some going back decades

    I reckon if they were all physical, I could fill practically every room in Buck House, and the Queen would barely have room to perch on the end of her bed!

    God knows how I'm going to sort them all. I'll have to come up with some system involving a MySQL database and MD5 hashes (although a lot are already sorted into publisher).

    Hey AtW, you must have much the same problem. How on Earth do you sort your porn collection?

    Why not just read them haphazardly?
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'
