The tragedy of Macbeth!

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.I've been reviewing my self-published book sales for 2017. A useful exercise, as it gives me an idea of what you bastards are interested in.

There's a pretty big variation between the different titles. Some sell much better than others. Some don't sell at all. Macbeth! being a good example. Only one copy exists. The one I got for myself.

Which means no-one owns all my books. Because I've given away several personal copies and not replaced them.

This may sound weird, but I don't know how many books I've written. 30-odd, I think. More if you count each edition of Yule Logs!!!!, which is completely different every year.

I'd be interested to see who owns the most of my books. Will it be me?

Comment with your count. There's a special prize for the winner - though I will expect photographic evidence.
