That's a lot of books Kenneth, do you read everyone before they go on the shelves?

I think the first one I would pick up in a Library would be: Orchids their botany and culture, by Alex D Hawkes

Probably not a good time to admit I threw a lot of my Orchid books away ! :oops:
I'd read them many times, cover to cover and they had just become dust gatherers.
