    I believe that you are not alone in your book collecting: I too share 
    your passion for books.  When I approached the 2,000 book mark I 
    decided that I would become more selective.  I have arbitrarily set a 
    ceiling of 2,000 books.  If I begin to get close to that mark, I thin 
    my books and sell them at a local used book store.  I usually do a 
    batch of 200 books at a time.  They pay me half in cash and give me 
    half of the value as a credit at the book store, which I then use to 
    of course buy more books... ;-)

    To the list in general: I am sure that there are others out there 
    with bibliomania - it goes with the territory!
