No more tapes!

That's it! We're done! I have officially gotten rid of all of the books on tape. I have been purchasing audiobooks on CD for the last couple months (a handful in December and a whole bunch in January) and have gotten some donations as well. I'll be buying some more audiobooks on CD this month, either this week or next week. It's very exciting!

I am currently finishing up Ken Follett's "Pillars of the Earth" as I drive to and from work. I'm on disk 30 of 32, so I have to decide what to listen to next! I like the way the reader does all the accents: Welsh, low-class, high-class, French, etc. He's good.

Also this month I'll be getting more kids' audiobooks on CD, since we only have a tiny handful at the moment. (We have Castle in the Attic by Elizabeth Winthrop, Skippyjon Jones Lost in Spice by Judy Schachner and maybe 2 others.)

How many books???

Some lovely people came in & counted books this morning! Guess how many books we have! C'mon, guess!

No. More. Ok, less than THAT.

4,698 books made of paper
91 books on tape & CD


416 videos on VHS & DVD.


Actually, I have a whole box of donations and new purchases I haven't processed yet. Plus 3 more audiobooks here on my desk.
