Even if only half of the weight are books, then it seems you may have about 5000 of them. Much more than I have! The question exceeds the purpose of the forum and may already have been answered in some other place, but don't you mind telling me what kind of books they are?
Lol ok ok it's not all books. Not even half of it. Not even 1/4 of it probably. That weight includes my husband's garage full of tools & the boat & the piano... And DH thinks it's a gross overestimation. DH estimates professionally for his living so he's probably right.
I probably have the equivalent of 5 large book shelves (6ft tall by 3-4ft wide).. maybe it's a little more than that :-p hard to say... The vast majority is homeschool stuff. I have a few shelves full of encyclopedic type reference books, an enormous amount of math books -- both curricula & enrichment, and then just tons of novels & historical fiction for the kids to read.
My language stuff is more reasonable. Maybe I'll take pictures while I'm doing all this sorting..

Je suis contente de te voir ici, même si tu n'es venu que pour me taquiner.
In fact, I just got rid of all my clothes (..and bought new ones...) So everything I have fits in a single suitcase
... We're not counting shoes in this calculation, are we??

My husband has about 4x what I have... Or maybe more than that at this point because he needs to have different levels of professional clothes. The leggings and t-shirts that I live in take up almost no space at all.
