I've probably got around 500 books (do a lot of library reading too). I really haven't noticed a difference since I got out of dubdom a couple months ago . Maybe I read a little more, but I've always been a big reader (despite being a witness most of my life).
I like using the books to chronicle myself. An early teen love affair with cheesy science fiction. A streak of true crime in High School, a nasty little fetish with self-help I'm glad to say I'm over, and a current bent toward first-time fiction novels (I kinda love that feeling of supporting new writers. "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel is my latest favorite). Yep, I think I'm just your typical booknerd.
