I posted my little golden book collection a few months ago when I didn't have adequate shelving yet I had a little less than 1100 . Since then, my goal is to obtain an example of each title published (not necessarily first editions, but I'll take them if I can) as inexpensively as possible. The ones I lacked were some of the harder to find titles. I now have just over 1200 unique titles or variants (different cover for example) and just about 100 to go to fulfill my goal. I'm not worried so much about getting current titles printed in the past two decades. They make for a nice decorative element and a great source of entertainment for my children and visiting children.
These are only the shelves with the standard size books.. I also have some other formats such as big Goldens, little littles, first littles, shape books, records, and non-book merchandise like games, plush animals, handkerchiefs, lunch box and a few other items. I have nowhere near everything made. I just enjoy the ways one can incorporate their collection into living area without being intrusive or cluttered and wished to share my way of doing so.
I started a (not so active) blog at littlegoldenmemories.blogspot.com. On the web (not mobile) version there is a link on the right to my collection list as well as the titles I'm still missing. I plan to create a spreadsheet for other collectors for download that will help guide them when building their own collections. I am seeking permission from the author of the identification guides I'm using as reference before I do.
Edit: one of my images keeps showing upside down so I'll keep trying.
