When I was in college, I had around 2k+ books in my "collection"..

 

Yes I hoarded. The books include those raunchy romance novels, sweet valley high series (I had over a hundred), choose your own adventure. Things I collected during my pre teen days.  Then, I started collecting classics in high school (reading requirements) .. shakespeare, jane austen, george elliot.  Bought science books too. Sherlock holmes series. Victor hugo. Catcher in the rye. 

Come college, I was reading more engineering and mathematics textbooks. But I read 6 fiction books a month and that added to my collection. Jeffrey archer, james clavell, clancy, etc.

I had megaboxes and megaboxes full of my old books.

Then my mom had the great idea of doing a general cleaning and I had to get rid of everything... Except for very few select pieces. So I kept my harry potter books and the rest I had to sell at a garage sale or donate. 

Now I just have ebooks, but starting to rebuild my physical "library".. I am now reading "Originals" by Adam Grant because I'm a grown up.

Brother, there's airtight plastic boxes for sale in Lazada. With rubber lining in the cover. Maybe you want to add to cart and wait for 11.11 sale or any sale. If you can stop air from getting into your books, that might preserve them longer. Welcome back! Nawala ka for a few days 🙂
