Imagine that -- 65,000 books!

Almost as many as Linda has in her TBR pile.

Absolutely -- but you may  need larger Hard Drives to store them.

Rabbi Menahem Mendel of Vorki was asked what constitutes a true Jew.

He said: “Three things are fitting for us: upright kneeling, silent screaming, motionless dance.”

At the rate she reads them, though, it won't take her long.

65,000 -- no problem. A net source says that the average Kindle e-book file size is 2.6 MB, which is small compared to audio and video. So 65,000 multiplied by 2.6 gives 169,000 MB. If I'm calculating properly, that would mean I need 169 gigabytes of storage.

I don't know of any ereaders that have that much storage, but external disk drives the size of an ordinary book can hold many terabytes of data, and just cost around a hundred dollars. They'd hold that number of books many times over.

Well, maybe. But remember, she's spending a lot of time on this forum. That's gotta hurt.
