Ah, it appears one can fill a library with books about libraries.
 
Poll: how many books in your personal library?
0 -- i don't own any books; i'm not a reader
0 -- i don't own any books -- i borrow from friends or the library
0 -- all my books are e-books
1 - 25 -- not a lot
26 - 100 -- a nice, tidy sum
101 - 500 -- enough to wallow in
501 - 1500 -- enough to build a fort
1501 - 5,000 -- enough to build all of hobbiton
5001 - 15,000 -- ulmo told me to collect this many and build a hidden fortress in the mountains and tell no one (oooooops!)
