On The Spot

How many books are there in your personal library? 

Bob Ransome
At least 80, lots of history. Killer Angels by Michael Schaara may be my favorite. Also, The Art of War by Sun Tzu.
~ Bob Ransome, Cold Spring

Brittany Chengeri
About 300. I’m addicted to buying used books, though I don’t read them all.
~ Brittany Chengeri, Beacon

Jane Timm
Many. Probably 2,000.  Mostly nonfiction. I like books about the history of food.
