It’s been a quiet week in Athens, so I’ve been counting, counting, counting. Here’s what we’ve got:

5,426 Beginner (ex: Dr. Seuss, Little Golden Books)
4,028 Chapter Books, level 1 (grades 1-2)
3,497 Chapter books, level 2 (grades 3-5)
931 Chapter books, level 3 (advanced books, grade 5)
2,517 Middle/High school
606 Unsorted

I hope that adds up to 17,007… but I’m pretty tired after 8 hours of counting books so no guarantees!

The total doesn’t include our books in Greenville. It’s been quiet here, but over at Kay’s house… totally different story. BookMoochers are burying her in an avalanche of books. Keep ’em coming.
