Unfortunately. Most of my books, both collections and reference, never got out of the boxes after we moved nearly ten years ago. Many hundreds of books, packed away (I should be taken out and shot). However, I have a couple hundred books at my ready fingertips. One small four shelf bookshelf full of mostly antique automobile, early movies, and other historic interest books that I refer to quite often, and a bunch of other books scattered around that I also use often. Being first an antique automobile aficionado, the book I refer to most is probably my Kimes and Clark "Standard Catalog of American Cars, 1805-1942" . I also use my "Model T Ford, The Car That Changed the World" by Bruce McCalley fairly often. I use my "The Reader's Digest Encyclopedic Dictionary" (1966 edition) probably more than any other general reference. It is 7X10 inches and over 3 inches thick of print fine enough that these days I need to use a magnifying glass to read it even with my glasses on.
