Review Day: Library Thing

I LOVE Library Thing!!  It is AWESOME!!!  For $25, you can catalog all of the books you will EVER use for the rest of your life.  Since we're at the beginning of our homeschooling journey, we'll be adding books to our collection for years.

I have discovered one thing, however.  After talking with other homeschooling moms I'm finding I'm not the only one who has made this shocking discovery after beginning to catalog their collections. 

I seriously underestimated the number of books we had.  I can't tell you the number of times I've told people that we probably have a "couple hundred books".  HA!  Couple hundred on one shelf, maybe!!  After adding 3/4 of our Sonlight curriculum, about 1/8 of our readers, and a very small percentage of our children's books, we have 345 books!!!!!!!!!! 

I still have more curriculum, more readers, more kids books...a LOT more kids books, and I haven't even touched the adult books yet!  Wow! 

I suppose this is why they say you should take a full inventory "just in case" of a fire, etc.  Yeah.  What insurance company thinks of a homeschooler and their massive amount of books when they say this?  And to think...we've recently gotten RID of books!  We had more!

Here's my "library" to this point:
