I am shocked at how few children's books everyone has.
I have at least a few hundred and we go to the library twice a week.

This is about half of ours. The rest are in the boys rooms (the special ones they get for birthdays etc)
I actuallt just had to go through and cull a heap they dont read anymore going to take them to the childrens hospital

We too go to the library.
Books can be expensive (on top of the rest of the weekly budget) so not something we buy often.
I have bought a few classics at markets or online that were a bargain.

I get a lot of the good classic titles (wombat stew, very hungry caterpillar, who sank the boat etc ) in cheap packs at the post office. I admit I dont buy many hard covers though.

No problem with me, derail away. I agree books are so expensive! We don't have many books as my boys seem to have a few that they love and read aaaalllll the time. I've bought new ones and they aren't interested. Half of the books we have haven't been read yet! Or they just break them.
I'll look at the post office books to see if they are cheaper and keep buying them. Hopefully they'll be more interested in books when they get a little older.

DD's favourite and most read books are on the bookshelf of her bed (currently building our collection of Peppa Pig books!)
Her other books are on the bookcase in the nursery.
We also have a few books in her play area in the living area.
I agree books are so expensive! If I see any on offer I know DD will love I buy and put away for Christmas, birthdays, Easter etc.
I love the Julia Donaldson books for her! She loves them!

I've never thought of books as being exensive, because we pick almost all of ours up from op shops. Now I think about it though, they're definitely not cheap if you want to buy more than a few new.
www.bookdepository.com is usually relatively cheap, and they have free delivery.
www.booktopia.com.au sometimes has sitewide specials that make for some good deals. They also often have some good books on clearance. It can be a bit hit and miss though.
www.booko.com.au is also good for comparing prices
