SBQ Cross Stitch Books

How many cross stitch books do you own and how often do you use them?

I suppose I have to count them? Well let's see, one entire shelf is dedicated to stitching books. Then there's one shelf dedicated to magazines and leaflets. In total, there are 41 books. Wow. Didn't know I had *that* many.

As for how often I use them... Well, I look at them quite often. Does that count? I've made projects out of several. Wow, do I really have that many? I guess I shouldn't be surprised since I have a lot of books overall.

Anyone know how many Holidays In Cross Stitch books there are?
