Of course, I'm not saying you won't live that long, only that I can't imagine you won't buy anymore books for ten years in order to clear through them...
Well you are correct, it's a lot to get through. Fortunately I now own 95% plus of what I have been after .w.r.t already published books and do not tend to buy many newly published books (less than 20 per year) now or into the future. Therefore I will eventually get to the point where owned and read are on equal footing but that will probably take upwards of 15 years, which will still equate to me being in the workforce to earn enough money to buy more books....MUWAHAA!!
HMMM...I think you may be onto something after all....
