     Are you being sarcastic here or do people actually own more books than you? The only way you can own this many books is to just purchase the sea of opening books people make in their sheds over a weekend. Then again, I suppose it depends how many languages you can speak...

    I own no books at this moment in time. However, after Christmas, and my January birthday, I shall own all of five books- My System, Winning Chess Strategy, Winning Chess Tactics, Winning Chess Endgames, and Jeremy Silman's Complete Endgame Course.

    Not the biggest collection, which was the point of this thread, I believe, but a collection which (I hope!) covers everything I need to know.

    It won't be me either, I have about 50 chess books (although I do have access to the Hasting's Chess Club library.... a couple of thousand volumes.... some very old, and some valuable enough to be locked away).

    Nytik: That's a substantial library Reb has but I'm sure there's more than a few who have more. I know two people, albeit not on this site, who have way more than that.  Personally I "only" have about 70-80 but I also have hundreds of magazines such as the british ones Chess and British Chess magazines.  It's not a question of what one needs in terms of learning, most i just read for entertainment, games collections, biographies, and tournament reports etc.

    Only 50-60 or so books for me, but I remember one person on this site living in CA had an immense library they donated to a chess club...

    I believe in quality over quality. I read my books several times before purchasing anything new. I think I own about 10 books.

    I have more books than I have time to read.

    I wish I had time for some of the books on my shelf such as Kasparov's "Great Predecessor" books and Zurich 1953. Who has time to read when it takes hours to play one game!

    An excellent beginning--should occupy you for awhile. I suspect you'll add tactics books or opening books (general or specific) before crossing 1800 FIDE. All in good time.

    I'm afraid my collection is comparatively small, but its quality not quantity! 30 great books are better then 200 cheaply produced,badly written, typo riddled books which seem to infest a lage majority of chess litereture!

     That is the general idea, I chose these books to cover the broad spectrum of chess- tactics, strategy, openings, endgames, and My System thrown in because it's apparently practically essential Smile. And I notice this is what your blog is based on.

    I then plan to go in-depth on one or two openings- I hope to have a strong reply to both 1. e4 and 1. d4 as black and then I was thinking the English opening also. But anyway, sorry for interrupting your thread Reb.

     Doesn't look like you read that post several times before hitting submit  (quality over quality?).  Sorry couldn't resist...Wink

     I want your autograph! I have promised myself several times to read one (1!) for every three I buy!  No success.

    I currently have 86, only read about 30, some are just reference, some are soely instructional, some are stories- I enjoy book collecting and whatever subject I am interested in at the time I end up purchasing some quantity depending on my interest and the availability of books for that particular subject.

    I counted up my chess book collection today and I've got around 800 including Informants and New In Chess Yearbooks. Also, countless magazines I've subscribed to over the years. My favourite books are player biographies and best games collections, tournaments (old and more recent) and quality books on match play. I tend to go for quality over quantity now especially hard cover books that will last even though they tend to be more expensive. Also, books on chess history interest me, it's great reading about the greats of the past.

    I've devoted a whole room for my collection and very quickly running out of space, but that won't stop me from buying more though! I'm a chess book junkie, I guess I just love reading about chess.

    Amazon is a favourite site of mine for chess book purchases as they always have the latest and hard to find older books at a great price. Their postage charges are reasonable too. You also have the option of saving some money and buying second hand.

    All these books may not be turning me into a champion but I get a lot of enjoyment out of reading them.

    I think I have close to 200 chess books, which comprise perhaps 10% of my home library. I have long regretted diminishing my chess library by half when I had a dozen texts and was playing little chess. I traded them at a used bookstore for a fat public policy text from the Kennedy administration.

    Two of the tournament books I lost in that exchange are out of print, and were among the best tournaments in the early 1970s.
